Introduction

The Saikyo (strongest) tournament was the predecessor of the Meijin Tournament. The formula was interesting. The six players in the league play each other twice, once with black and once with white. The total number of wins (or jigo) determines the winner. The games were played with ten hours thinking time and no komi.
