BGJ 157 Autumn 2011
Reviewer: Tony Atkins
Those who have read the BGA history pages will probably know about the important early Go book in English by Horace F. Cheshire. This historically important book was published by the author in Hastings in 1911.

p >In the new porcelain galleries opened in 2009 (on level 6) there are many items depicting Go (or on some items it may represent Chinese Chess (Xiangqi)). Unless otherwise stated they were made in the 1662 to 1722 period in Jingdezhen, the centre of Chinese porcelain manufacture. The first number shown is gallery number / case number / shelf.
Held at the Nippon Club.
The winner of this year's Shrewsbury tournament was Toby Manning, after a long struggle with Baron Allday, who creatively made eyes for two wandering dragons only to find his safe corner die as a result. Toby collected his prize at a run and departed to catch a plane to Kosovo, now less of a war zone than the Go board. Kathleen Timmins also won three games.
The bar was at 2k. Handicap and no-komi games are in red.
