Champion: Matthew Macfadyen.
Challenger: Des Cann.
This was played as part of the 2000 Mind Sports Olympiad.
In game 1, Des was ahead for most of the game, and Matthew would not have won without the komi. The game record is available here in SGF and Ishi formats, with comements by Seong-June Kim, 6 dan, and Charles Matthews, 3 dan.
Des won his right to challenge Matthew for the title by winning the 8 player all-play-all Challenger's tournament with a clean sweep.
To get into the Challenger's league, players had to do well in the Candidates' Tournament, which was held on the 18th and 19th of March.
