GeneralThe 9th Ghent Easter tournament Othello Open will be held on Easter Monday April 13th 2020. More information can be found in the sections below. Questions and remarks can be sent to the organisation.
The Easter tournament is a special event and is generally welcoming many promising and rather unexperienced players. It is the perfect tournament to play for less experienced players.
This tournament is part of the Belgian Grand Prix 2020 and the Foreigners Grand Prix 2020, but has a special status: to benefit participation above competition, every player will receive two points.
We're hoping to welcome many players!
