Helsinki Open, October 2007 (10-06 - 10-07)

Helsinki Open 2007 will be played in a beach house located in eastern Helsinki (about half an hour from the city of city center). We believe that the beautiful and clean nature with an astonishing sights to the gulf of Finland will provide a perfect atmosphere for the biggest renju event in Helsinki this year.

A taraguchi tournament will be played during the weekend. The event starts at Saturday 12 noon. The tournament will most likely be with 7 or 9 rounds with 30 to 45 minute time control, depending on the number of participants. There is a 10? tournament fee, which we will use to cover the house rent, coffee, small snacks and trophies.

Once again we are proud to welcome all renju friends to this
traditionally friendly event!
