Pandanet Go European Team Championship
Pandanet
24 January 2012

We went into our match this week hoping to get our first win of the season, Switzerland being one of the weaker teams who were promoted from the C league.

On 1st board was new team member Chong Han. He played an unconventional, centre-oriented opening which lead to complex fighting and many chances for both to win, but in the end he lost by a few points.

On board two Des Cann started powerfully and looked on course for a crushing victory until he blundered some key cutting stones, but fortunately he battled on and won anyway. Alex Selby also won his relatively peaceful game.

Finally, Andrew Simons lost his game when he played a time tesuji to read if a group could be killed by ko or unconditionally and then forgot to kill it afterwards.

The Swiss team kindly let us join reviews of the games the next evening by their trainer, Hwang In-seong 7d. So another draw and our first win of the season remains elusive.

British Small Board

Andrew Simons won the slightly delayed 2011 British Small Board Championship to hold on to his title won in 2010, by beating Tim Hunt, despite losing to him in their first game. Unfortunately though Andrew still has not received the trophy as the delay in passing it on last time was repeated when the organiser brought the wrong trophy along. Nevertheless all else was organised well, including the cooking by Paul Smith's family. Youth prize winner was Melchior Chui who won all 8 games. Best Junior was Anthony Ghica with 6/8, and best under-8 player was Edmund Smith. Other junior prizes went to Peran Truscott and David Robson. Also winning prizes were Andrea Smith and Stanislaw Klajn.

Xinyi Lu, former organiser, was remembered at the 2012 Maidenhead Tournament. The tournament was honoured by the presence of both Xinyi's parents and several family friends. 49 players took part in the tournament and it was fitting that it was a Chinese player, Chu Lu 5d, who was the winner. She beat Bei Ge in the final. Also winning three were Mike Charles, 2k, and Dave Storkey, 8k.
