Transatlantic Pro Go Team Championship
There was huge controversy surrounding Mateusz Surma’s loss in the 4th game. This spawned much discussion online and has apparently led to a change of server and some rewriting of the rules. (For those looking to dig into it, I suggest starting with these threads in the Pro forum over on L19.)
Games 5 and 6 are currently scheduled for the 2nd and 9th of this month.
