Andrew Grant

Status: 
Deceased

Died 26th October 2009.

He had been suffering from cystic fibrosis, which had got much worse over the last couple of years, and was on the waiting list for a lung transplant. He had been in Milton Keynes Hospital for several weeks before his death, and although struggling just to breathe, he was still a formidable opponent over the Go board.

In his last ever game he beat Fred Holroyd on 5 stones, and in his last game against Tim Hunt he found a fantastic tesuji sequence to make a ko to save a large group and win the game.

At the Milton Keynes Go tournament over £100 was collected for Willen Hospice in Andrew's name.
