Pandanet Go European Team Championship
The 5th Pandanet Go European Team Championship will start 9th September, with 34 teams and 3 leagues. This tournament continues the tradition as an EGF-tournament where national teams play in a league system on the Pandanet-IGS server in the room EuropeanTeamChamp.

We will have 10 teams in League A: Russia, Czechia, France, Ukraine, Romania, Finland, Sweden, Serbia, Netherlands and Poland.

The 4th Pandanet Go European Team Championship leagues have finished and the last changes in the league places will be fought in the relegation games on Tuesday 3rd June.
Ukraine, Czechia, Russia and France earned their places in the finals. Congratulations and good luck in the European Go Congress in Romania.
The Netherlands is coming back to the league A, the 5th season starting autumn 2014. Hungary and Poland will resolve the last league A place in a five-board match this Tuesday. Israel unluckily dropped from the league A to the league B.
Turkey took a promotion to the league B with an impressive five point gap to the next in the league C. Italy and Switzerland still need to play for the league B place. Slovenia will patiently collect some speed from the league C next season.

Last Rounds - PGETC 2013/2014
Pandanet Go European Team Championship 4th edition, last rounds to be served:
The league A top four teams will qualify for the live finals at the 58th European Go Congress in Sibiu, Romania. Ukraine, Czechia, Russia and France might (just might) have already settled the issue. The bottom half 5 teams is another story, no team is theoretically safe to remain in the league.
The league B and the top two places are settled as well, but Poland and the Netherlands will fight over the direct league A qualification. In the lower half Belgium is safe, but Denmark, Italy, Slovenia and Norway need to play out for the place in the league.
The league C completes the honourable 11 rounds season 27th May. Turkey already has a place in the next league B but Switzerland, Spain and the UK need to rely on actual game results.
All games on Tuesdays, allowing some exceptions (check the pairings for detailed info). See the results and pairings in
