European Youth Go Championship
Bognor Regis
28 February 2014 - 3 March 2014

Please visit our Picture Gallery for many photos of this event.

Hopefully the 89 young players in the 19th European Youth Go Championship went away with happy memories of their time at the event. Inevitably there was the odd tear or two when a blunder was made in a game and unfortunately one girl had to withdraw due to sickness, but most players had a really good time both on and off the board. By holding the event at the Butlins holiday centre there was a lot to amuse the children between and after games and very few were seen at the venue after the second game of the day was over.

Bognor is the sunniest place in England and the weather did not disappoint on that count, although the competitors were greeted by rain when they arrived on the Friday and the Sunday evening turned stormy too.

Vanessa, who's now studying in California, has been nominated to represent Europe in the 2nd Bailing Aitou Cup in Beijing starting on 13th March.

The event is a mixed amateur and professional one, with a total of 64 players in the Main competition phase (16 professionals are seeded into this), and is held every two years.

The amateur group will be part of the Preliminary section with 16 Chinese, 8 Koreans, 4 Japanese, 2 Chinese Taipei, one each from the USA and Europe. The remainder of the Preliminary section is open to all professionals, so it will be quite tough for any amateur to reach the Main competition phase, in which money prizes are awarded to all players: from 20,000 Yuan for first round losers to 1,800,000 Yuan for the winner.

We wish her every success!
