This year the Durham Tournament was held in the Pemberton Rooms on Palace Green, between the historic Cathedral and Castle. There were 25 entrants ranging from 28k to 4d, including eight who had never played in a tournament before, and with the youngest player being 8 years old. On the Saturday night there was an all-you-can-eat Go BBQ, which had almost 30 people eating, drinking, and playing Go - some until gone midnight.
Durham alumnus Alex Kent (3d) won the Go Tournament, winning a Goat Ornament, and a 6 month subscription to Baduk TV English , kindly donated by Go Game Guru , retaining the title he won in 2013. Lightning and Small Board side events were won by Silas Maughan and Jonathan Teddy McManus. Prizes were also given for 4 or more wins, including James Milne, who won all 6 of his games.
