Date for SA Candidates 2005

The dates for the South African Candidates’ Tournament for 2005 has been provisionally set for 16 and 17 July 2005, subject to finalising venues. If the tournament, which will be held partially over the internet, is not completed that weekend, it will be resumed on 23 and 24 July.

The SA Candidates tournament is a tournament run by SAGA as the first phase of the South African Closed Championship. One’s position in this tournament determines the amount of placing points one gets for the year, which in addition to participation points, determine who represents South Africa to the World Amateur Go Championships each year. Good performance in at least one of South Africa’s open tournaments (such as the Cape Town and Joburg Open) is needed to qualify to play in the tournament. You are unlikely to participate in this tournament if you are not in the top 30 nationally on the SAGA ranking system. If you are in the top 30, and participated in a major open tournament, you may yet qualify for the tournament, so you’re advised to keep the weekends above open.
