If the first event is true or not I don't know but today Gothenburg Open beat Nordic Open in matches produced! Gothenburg Open has just reached 64 matches and last year Nordic Open stopped at 62! Pretty amazing considering Gothenburg Open is perhaps only a quarter of the size of Nordic! Jesper Carlsson and his transcription team has reason to be proud of this achievement!
A few more matches:
Michihito Kageyama (3.01) - Yan Kit Chan (2.17) 11pt Gøteborg Open 1-8-2017
Mårten Howe (3.78) - Daniel Tudose (5.07) 11pt Gøteborg Open 2017-01-06
Mårten Howe (4.48) - Mats Westin (3.29) 11pt Gøteborg Open 2017-01-09
Mårten Howe (5.63) - Magnus Helgesson (7.33) 11pt Gøteborg Open 2017-01-07
I have added the rest of the match videos (Perhaps Michy has a couple of more videos stored somewhere?) from the tournament to the match videos section:
if anybody is interested in helping out. Unless you're busy transcribing other matches you know what to do!
So which tournament did produce the most matches last year?
Oh hey! A win for Denmark! I couldn't find a report from Danish XG Masters 2016 but I found one from 2015
. Impressive stuff!
The swiss army knife of backgammon!
