Korean-style Insei League. Now also on DGS (as separated event)!
Recently I got several emails, similar to this one:
"We were talking about how the insei league seems really cool . . . but
as guys with jobs and kids there's just no way we could ever play 12
games a month + do lectures + do teaching games. Well, without getting
divorced or fired. To spend $95 a month is nothing . . . it's finding
the time that's the real trick.
Is there a way something similar could be done on DGS?"
So, we decided to start the separated project on DGS. Any players from 10-kyu to 7-dan are welcome to take part!
