Issue 1. November 1994
Northern Tournament (3/9-4/9/94)
This was the British entry for the European Grand Prix 1994-5.
However the Obayashi Cup was arranged to clash in Amsterdam. No
mainland Europeans played - lots of GP points for the British!
Joint winners on 5.5/6 were Matthew Cocke and Des Cann (both 4 dan).
Milton Keynes (24/09/94)
A one day tournament held at the Open University. Winner was
Edmund Shaw (5 dan) from Reading.
The Go Ban prize normally held by Macfadyen stayed with Leamington
Go Club as Des Cann beat Francis Roads by half a point to win the
Wessex Tournament (23/10/94)
Over 100 players attended the 25th Wessex Tournament. The winner,
who beat T.Mark Hall in the last round, was Cambridge's John
Rickard (4 dan).
Miss Kazuko Shoji visited London from the Nihon Kiin in October.
In two simultaneous 5 on 1 displays she only lost to Francis Roads
(by resignation) and to Tony Atkins (by 1 point).
We hope to have Miss Feng Yun in Britain for the first three
months of 1995 while she attends an English Class. She is Chinese
pro 7-dan and is hoping to arrange some teaching. She will arrive
with another pro and some amateurs for the London Open.
This year we are pleased to have HITACHI sponsorship again. The
venue is the same as in recent years: The Roundhouse, Ronalds Road
in Highbury. 1000 pounds in prize money. Many foreign players are
expected. Pros available for analysis.
Matthew Macfadyen in Japan
Our top home-grown player, Matthew Macfadyen 6 dan from
Leamington, is currently in Japan studying go teaching techniques
at the Nihon Kiin. Recently he was a game recorder at the Womens'
World Amateur Championships. Our representative, Alison Cross the
artist from London, was placed 19th with 3/8. Miss Sato of Japan
was the winner.
There is a list
of past issues of the British Go E-Journal.
