Andrew Grant


Died 26th October 2009.

He had been suffering from cystic fibrosis, which had got much worse over the last couple of years, and was on the waiting list for a lung transplant. He had been in Milton Keynes Hospital for several weeks before his death, and although struggling just to breathe, he was still a formidable opponent over the Go board.

In his last ever game he beat Fred Holroyd on 5 stones, and in his last game against Tim Hunt he found a fantastic tesuji sequence to make a ko to save a large group and win the game.

At the Milton Keynes Go tournament over £100 was collected for Willen Hospice in Andrew's name.
