Yes!

Now this tournament has pros from the US and a European pros from Asia, it now feels like a serious tournament, and it's nice to see the EGF and 日本棋院 on cordial terms again as they should be, communication is key when starting major projects.

I don't think that there are any professionals from the USA or Canada. Nice to see Antti joining in though, I suppose he had to get special permission to play.
