Berlin, Germany

The China Cup Team Tournament invites teams from all over Europe. It runs alongside the 5th Grand Slam Yike Cup, we will run this Team Tournament over two days. Since the 1980s, when the famous European Team Tournaments ran in Düsseldorf and Cologne, team-competitions have become very popular.

Single player can register too. On Saturday morning we will build the teams out of these players, please come a bit earlier.


  • Teams with minimum 3 players + 1 possible substitute player
  • 5 rounds McMahon System
  • Competition per round on three boards, no handicap

The players per team can be ordered random. The order must be fixed at the beginning of the tournament by the team-leader (Saturday morning) and can't be changed during the event. In teams with four players from round to round different three players can start.

Players without a team can also participate in the team-tournament ! For details look at “Tournament” and “Registration”
