Sponsored by Nihon Keizai Shimbun, Inc

In March 2010 the Nikkei Newspaper sponsored the eighth World Student Oza, held at the Ginza Internet Forum in Tokyo. 16 students were invited to take part, both male and female.

Qualifying for the European players (and other non-Asians) was by a tournament held online on Pandanet in autumn 2009.

Unfortunately one of the European representatives, Jan Simara from Czechia, was ill and could not take part.
