the KGS Meijin!
KGS is pleased to announce that
starting in 2012, we will crown one player as the KGS Meijin every year. Every
month, January through November, there will be a tournament on KGS. Sometimes
it will be open signup, sometimes there will be restrictions. In each
tournament, one or more people will qualify as Meijin contenders. In December
there will be one final tournament, where all contenders compete, the winner is becoming the KGS Meijin!
KGS Meijin winner will receive a cash prize for a minimum of $500 and a special Meijin icon.'

The plan is to crown "the best player on KGS". It's a very exciting and fresh idea!
far, smallbird (a new star on KGS, from
China) is the only 9-dan who has signed up for the January Qualifier. Some top
players from Europe (such as OohAah and Cornel) have also signed up.
Hopefully, in the next few days, more strong players will register as well.
Who would you like to become the first KGS Meijin?
