I know that I speak for all of the British Go community in saying how shocked and horrified we all were to learn of the untimely death of Xinyi Lu in October whilst on holiday in China.

At the time of his death, Xinyi had attained an unassailable position at the head of division 2 in the first full season of the Online Individual League, having had a 100% record of wins in all of his games.

We've created a number of display panels, following up Tony Atkins excellent production of some at A3 size on display at Leicester, having seen what the French did at the European Go Congress.

These are designed to be useable for external events and exhibitions and are downloadable from our website.

As a result of a posting on Life19x19 we've created a page to help people new to face-to-face tournament play to know what to expect.

It can be found at http://www.britgo.org/tournaments/1st

Please let anybody who might be interested in playing face to face know about this valuable resource.

I intend to close the current online league seasons at midday on Saturday 17th December 2011.

This will represent the end of the third season of the team league and the first proper season of the Individual League.

Not all the matches in the team league have been finished, however in nearly all cases I believe the outcome will be fair if I declare all the outstanding games to be drawn.

Tournament Name: 
West Surrey Handicap
Venue: 
Burpham
Tournament Date: 
3 December 2011

Ten years after previously winning, Malcolm Hagan won the West Surrey Handicap Tournament. This was probably the last ever such event, with only the support of 13 players meaning it is not worth continuing. Malcolm (7k Winchester) beat Roger Daniel (6k London) in the final to win all 4 games. Also winning 3 were Ed Blockley (5k Worcester) and Colin Maclennan (10k Twickenham).
