Despite being very near to Christmas and at a new venue near Edinburgh Castle, St Columba's by the Castle Episcopal Church Hall, 16 players managed to take part.

Tied at the top on three wins out of four and equal SOS were "Henry" Hongyi Chen (2d) from Glasgow and Polish player Jakub Ziomko (1d) from Aberdeen.

Two further prizes for three wins were awarded to Ben Lloyd (3k Edinburgh) and Ron Bell (5k Borders).

The UK Youth team had an exciting match today against the combined team of Croatia, Serbia and Slovenia. First to finish was Aidan on board 4 who played a solid game and claimed a straight forward win. We then lost on board 1 where Elom had a tough game against a 3 dan opponent. With the score 1-1 we needed a win on one of the two U16 boards. Both Charlotte and Edmund had exciting games which looked to be going their way after the opening. Charlotte had killed a large group and Edmund had mapped out a massive moyo. Unfortunately their opponents fought back strongly and we could not hold onto the advantage in either game leaving us 1-3 down with board 5 to play. Rather oddly neither board 5 managed to turn up online. Wenzhou for the UK had connection problems preventing him joining the match. The other team's player turned up 33 minutes late-technically also a default.

The Facebook AI Research group have submitted this paper for publication at ICLR 2016 (a conference in Puerto Rico in May). So the rumours of their developing a Go-playing program are correct!

As they say - it's not up to the best commercial programs yet, but it's probably around 4 Dan ...
