Pandanet Go European Team Championship
Pandanet
15 November 2011

Matthew Macfadyen had lost to Dusan Mitic, one of the undefeated Mitic brothers, by resignation the previous Wednesday, so we knew that we were up against it - the team we were able to put out against the Serbians was nominally slightly weaker than our opponents.

Despite some Serbian confusion as to the start time, sadly Nikola remained undefeated also, edging Bei Ge by just 0.5 points! So we were saved by Des Cann and Jon Diamond’s close victories on boards 3 and 4. (Jon was especially lucky having 'lost' the game several times, finally living with an L group and then killing one of the surrounding groups!)

Phew - the closest result in the round, perhaps the closest ever?

We're still near the bottom of the table, but a win in our next round could lift us to 3rd place as only two teams have won more than one match.

It is with great sadness that we have to report that Gerry died on Monday 14 November after a year battling cancer.

As you all know his grade was 1 dan, achieved in 1986, but much more importantly he was our Bookseller for more than 10 years. On his retirement from this role in 2010 he had been appointed a Life Member of the BGA, at which occasion this picture was taken.

The funeral will be at the Shrewsbury crematorium at 2.00 on Friday November 25, followed by a light buffet at a local hotel - venue yet to be decided.

Donations will be collected at the service and will be for the Severn Hospice where Gerry spent his final days. According to Simon Mills it is a truly wonderful place.

The BGA will be represented there by our Treasurer, Toby Manning.

It is with regret that we have to report the very tragic death of Xinyi Lu at the age of 26.

He was not just a Go player, but also an organiser and promoter of the game, being a BGA Council member from 2007 to 2010.

Xinyi died in an accident, while on holiday in China, at the beginning of October. His parents have created a website in his memory, some of you may wish to add your condolences there: https://sites.google.com/site/tributetoxinyi/

We offer our condolences to his parents and family.
