The upcoming weekend (19-20 november) there is the Open Swedish Team Championship in Stockholm, Sweden. The tournaments has been played for many many years and has from time to time been very popular. This year it does not seem to be very many players in the tournament. Historically there are mostly teams from Sweden, Finland and Estonia involved in the tournament. It would be a great to see more countries coming the the capital of Scandinavia to participate in this fun event and get to know more people in the industry.
The location for the tournament is Rosengatan 1, KFUM. The location is just perfect, in the city center and close to most attractions, shops and restaurants. If you bring your family to this event they will have plenty of fun while exploring the city.
The rules for the games are the usual and most common for Renju players. It will be time control 30+5min and Soosyrv-8. The teams should consist of 3 players and optionally 1 reserve player.
The cost is 40 kr per person.
As of now there is 4 non-Swedish teams registered. 1 team from Russia and 3 teams from Estonia.
It is great to see that Estonia is coming with 3 teams this year and are in the front edge of the development in Norther Europe. It is a development that we hope will spread to other countries. The question is how Estonia have became such great nation for Renju. We talked to one leading players from Estonia that says. Due to the great popularity of games in Estonia and the growth of online casino or online kasiino as it is called in Estonia. The scene for games such as Renju has been extraordinary favourable in Estonia. We will update you with the results from the tournaments and other any other information that could be of your interest. We wish all the participants good luck in the tournament. May the best team win!
