KPMC

The Korean Prime Minister’s Cup is an international tournament organised each year by the Korean Amateur Baduk Association, and held in Korea. The tournament began in 2006, and South Africa has been sending representatives to this tournament since its inception. Our representatives and their results to date are below. Unlike the WAGC, this tournament has until now used a form of seeding. It seems that the tournament is run as a MacMahon tournament, with initial MMS assigned as 2, 1 or 0 based on the stated rank of the player entering.
