SportAccord World Mind Games has had two editions so far. The first one took place from 8-16 December 2011 and the second from 12-19 December 2012. Beijing, the capital of China will be the host city of the event until 2014. The next edition is scheduled from 12-18 December 2013.
Following the great success of the two first editions of the online tournament in 2011 and 2012, SportAccord has decided to reiterate the experience in 2013, with the support of its member federations – WBF (World Bridge Federation), FMJD (International Draught Federation), IGF (International Go Federation) and WXF (World Xiangqi Federation), with the support of the most important mind games online platforms, such as Bridge Base, KNDB and Pandanet.
In brief, the 8th Korea Prime Minister Cup International Amateur Baduk Championship went the same way as the 35th World Amateur Championship in Sendai last month and the 7th KPMC last year. The Chinese and Korean players were unscathed in the first five rounds and the Korean player won the decisive game between them in the sixth round, which is the final KPMC round. The players were different, however, and there was plenty of drama in the rounds preceding the sixth.
