Andrew Kay (4d, South London) won the first ever City of London Winter Go Tournament, by winning all three of his games against Alex Rix (2d, Central London), Paul Taylor (1d, St Albans) and Andrew Simons (3d, Cambridge). Also on three wins was Phil Smith (5k) who is not affiliated to a club. Andrew Kay also had time to play an unbeaten six games in our new Xinyi Lu 13x13 Cup, winning that also in a close finish with Jonathan Turner (1k, CLGC). Andrew also won the City club's Blitz Shield last October, making him somewhat a "Grand Slam" winner of all the competitions they have run in the past few months! The event was well attended, with 37 players braving the cold weather and threats of snow. The hospitality of the Melton Mowbray pub and the kindness of the staff helped to blow away any Winter blues.
