In what I believe was the largest ever purse at a European go event, this last weekend saw the holding of the first European Grandslam event. This event was open to the four professional EGF players, and the top eight amateurs by EGF rating. Ilya Shikshin 1p won the event and with it 10,000 Euros. There were also significant prizes for the lower places.
The picture shows Ilya receiving his 10,000 Euro cheque.
