Relationship between European class scale and dan/kyu scale.

The table has been incorporated in the above list and goes all the way to 26 kyu (Class 70-71)

The difference between two Dan/Kyu grades is one stone. Komi (of 5 pts.) is only given between players of the same grade. Hence, a 2nd Kyu player would give a 9th Kyu player 7 stones, and so on.
