Edinburgh Christmas
Edinburgh
3 December 2011

No weather problems this year, unlike in in 2010 which delayed that edition until February. Yunlong Liu (3d Stirling) was the best of the 24 players attending, with Boris Mitrovic (1k Edinburgh) the runner-up on 3 wins.

West Surrey Handicap
Burpham
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).

There is some nice publicity for go in this week’s edition of Ariel (the BBC staff magazine which also goes outside the BBC to some people in the wider media industry).

The article is about Alison Bexfield's participation in the World Amateur Pair Go Tournament, made the top half of page 4 and included a nice picture of her by a goban.

University College Cork
University College Cork
19 November 2011 - 20 November 2011

23 players graced Cork with their presence this year. The tournament took place in the rather beautiful main campus of University College Cork. Top of the bunch was Kim Ouweleen, 3d, from Amsterdam, with a perfect 5/5. In second place was Ian Davis, 1d, who edged out Spain's Matei Garcia, 4k, on tiebreak, despite his 5/5 score. Also scoring 5/5 was Thomas Shanahan, 15k, from Galway.

We are almost at the halfway point now of 2011's Shodan Challenge. I'd like to take this opportunity to appeal for any dan players who are interested in becoming mentors to come forward, as there is an unfortunate lack of such mentors available, meaning some strong kyu players have not been able to have a mentor.

International Amateur Pair Go Championship
Tokyo
19 November 2011 - 20 November 2011

The British Pair of Alison and Simon Bexfield topped the group on 2 wins to come 17th in the 22nd IAPGC. They beat pairs from Philippines and Spain, but lost to Korea and two Japanese pairs. For the 6th time in a row Korea won, with Chinese Taipei in second this time. The top European pairs were Hungary in 9th and Czechia in 12th, both with 3 wins.

Partly due to Facebook's decision to archive our group, like many other groups, and also the death of Xinyi Lu, who was managing the old group information, we've decided to open a new Facebook page.

So please follow this in future (if you're into Facebook).

Andrew beat Matthew in their third-round game to allow Andrew to increase his current titles to five. Matthew Macfadyen got the prize for second and Chu Lu, from the University club, was third.
