A word from president of Grenoble go club :

For the first year, the go club of Grenoble organizes the European Youth Go Championship 2017 (EYGC 2017). In order to make encounter all great european players - not only the young players - we decided to make a bigger event organizing a big size tournament : the TIGGRE (french accronym of International Go Tournament of GREnoble).

InSeong Hwang who is a member of the club and also one of the best player I know but overall a great friend wanted to help us organizing it and decided to give prizes for this tournament. We all thanks him for this special move -tesuji-

This is why this tournament will be named Ellie Cup this year, to celebrate another tesuji of Semi Lee and Inseong Hwang : the birth of their daughter, Ellie.

We will be really glad to host you for this tournament and before let you know about rules, venue... I let you with the message of InSeong.


Dear European Go players,
It has been about 10 years since I live in Europe.
I believe that I received a lot of benefits from the European Go world while I stay, so I was looking for a chance to give this favor back.
In the meanwhile, Grenoble Go club organizes the EYGC 2017 and plans to make a big tournament at the same period.
I think it is the best if I sponsor a big tournament. Then top European players can have a chance to play good games, and many of European Go players enjoy watching their games.
It would be a big pleasure if many of top level European players join in this tournament and show their best skills.
I will be in the tournament venue all the time and enjoy this beautiful game together with them.
Hope to see many of you in this great event!
Sincerely yours,
In-seong Hwang
