The 2020 Mind Sports Olympiad, for obvious reasons, will migrate ONLINE; it will certainly not be the same, but perhaps it can be an opportunity to expand the audience. Here is the original message from the organizers. The only alternative was to cancel the event, so let’s be satisfied and try to understand the great effort they are making.
“I’d like to start this post wishing everyone good health. The Coronavirus has created enormous challenges but it’s also reminded us just how precious life is, and that we are all interconnected in a more global world than ever before. As we begin to reemerge towards a new normal, we’re seeing that most large gatherings this year are being canceled or postponed.

We are currently working on this year’s program and will announce dates and events soon. Stay tuned.”
