Japan  tournaments | old meijin tournament  

The Meijin title is decided in a best of seven match with 8 hours thinking time per person. The challenger comes from a league with 9 participants. The players in the league are ordered according to their results in the previous year. The winner becomes challenger (a playoff game decides in case of a tie) and the lowest three players demote and are replaced by the winners of the three qualification knockout tournaments. Again, in case of a tie a playoff game decides who demotes. The 19th edition of the tournament shows all stages, so you can get an idea. These pages include all title match games and the league and playoff games when available. The Japanese Title Overview page shows what's available.

The Meijin is the second most prestigeous title with a first prize of about USD 200,000,=

This tournament is defunct.
