Eight players came out to the Continental Inn in Lancaster, PA for the Fall For Go Tournament last weekend. First place certificate went to Matt Litke 9k, with five wins against all seven opponents (5-2), and second place certificate went to Bob Crites 9k, with five wins against six (5-1) opponents. Honorable mention to Marie Bartel 13k with four wins against six opponents (4-2). The tournament’s instant pairing format allowed players to start their next game almost immediately after finishing a game. “I can’t believe it’s already 5:00!” said Bob Crites after playing half a dozen back-to-back games without even taking a break for lunch.

The annual 28th Brussels Tournament will take place October 26-27. Because it will not be part of the European Cup this year, the tournament will be offering cash prizes for the top four players rather than ECup points. In addition, all players with four or five wins will receive a prize and there will be a tombola (lottery) with 150 EU prizes for all pre-registered players. For players who register and pay before October 20, there is a 5 EU discount. Players born after October 31, 2001 will also receive an additional 5 EU discount. For more information including schedule, venue, and accommodations, please visit the Belgian Go Federation website.
