Changes may be introduced, depending on the exact number of participating teams, but the start and end dates of the tournament itself – Sun 12 Aug and Sat 17 Aug – are firmly fixed.

Each team must consist of four main players and may have up to 2 substitute players. The full rules of the tournament will be announced later and will be in accordance with the RIF regulations. The tournament fee will be 120 EUR per team.

Just before the tournament, the Polish Gomoku Championship will be held (10-11.08.) – the latter competition is open, so every player who comes to Płock can also join it.

The tournament hall and accommodation are located at Hotel Płock (, which is situated in Płock, a historical capital of Poland, located about 100 km from Warsaw.

The hotel is in the very centre of the city, 50 m from a bus stop and about 1,5 km from the main bus and train station (there is no airport in Płock, thus you can get there by car, bus or train). There are shops and restaurants near the hotel, and also the old town is less than 1 km away.

We secured good prices – 80 PLN (ca. 19 EUR) and 100 PLN (ca. 24 EUR) per person and night in a double and single room, respectively, with breakfast.

If you decide to stay in the hotel and accept the price, let us know by Sun 15 Apr, and we will make a final booking for you. We will help you find a cheaper accommodation if requested, but strongly recommend the hotel suggested above.

Please let us know whether you are interested to participate in this event, and please also let us know about your team members and accompanying persons as soon as possible.

We would greatly appreciate it if your country had a main representative for contact. This would help us a lot.

We hope to see you in Płock!

Yours Faithfully,

WTGC 2018 Organizing Committee
