* Notes about price giving
– „1st place“ means the one player who reached the best place within the overall standings, participated in all 5 rounds, and won at least 3 games.
– If there is an overlap (a player wins in more than 1 category), the price of the category mentioned further down in the list will be given to the 2nd place of this catergory (we want that as many participants as possible will gain a price)
-> Example: Player A becomes 1st place within 2 categories: „students“ and „1-9 kyu“. In this case, player A gains the price for the best student but, in the  category „1-9 kyu“, the 2nd place gains the price money.

Private accommodation possible but limited (definitely pre-register until 18.08.2019!). Please bring sleeping bag and sleeping mat along with you.

In other respects, there are two youth hostels and several hotels and pensions in Jena. They are all easily accessible with public transport or by foot (about 30 min from the tournament site to the city centre). You can contact the tournament committee (go-in-jena@gmx.de) for help with bookings etc.

Similar to the  last years, we’ll have a lovely self-made buffet, where you can get buns, salads, cake, and snacks for a small contribution towards expenses. Around noon, we will also serve a warm dish.
Your physical well-being is guaranteed 🙂

On Sunday, there will be an all-you-can-eat breakfast featuring coffee, tea, hot chocolate, and buns.
If you want to participate, please get a coupon during your registration for 3,00 €.

Specials and side events

We welcome Kim Youngsam (8d) and Manja Marz (4d) from JIGS as our special guests this year. On Friday at 18:30, they will give a seminar for all Kreuzschnitt participants arriving on Friday. The seminar is mainly tailored towards kyu players but dan players are welcome to attend as well. The topic has yet to be revealed. Participation is free of charge but you are welcome to donate towards supporting JIGS and the tournament.

Catering for the evening will be simple: Buns for self-service.

Once again, we have lots of Tsumego problems for you. The aim is to solve as many problems as possible. There will be prices for the most solved problems in three different groups: double digit kyu (DDK), single digit kyu (SDK) and dan (DAN).

Card and board games (other than Go):
A big box with card- and board-games gives perfect opportunity to overcome the gaps between the rounds and have some fun! 🙂
