1998 British Open Shogi Championships - Results


Report:

The 1998 British Open Shogi Championships were held on Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th April at The Boathouse in Cambridge, UK. The Championships were well attended, with a total of 24 entrants, including 6 players from overseas. The weather was wet and cold, quite unlike the weather seen there in February, but it didn't stop everyone making the most of the Shogi, refreshments and hospitality at The Boathouse.

We are hoping to see you all again next year in Cambridge, with much better weather!!
