Good news - big gomoku party is coming soon!
Here is some important info from organisers:

After 8 years the World championship in gomoku returns to the Czech Republic - the place where it all began in 2009. The competition has built up a marvellous tradition since then, visiting Pardubice, Huskvarna, Tallinn and Suzdal. Now it's time for Prague!
GWC 2017 will take place between 19th and 30th July. On the following pages you can find all the necessary information (and if not, don't hesitate to ask us):
