MSO 13x13
Tournament Date: 
27 August 2010

There were no British players winning Go Golds at this year's Mind Sports Olympiad. The event was held at the Soho Theatre in the centre of London and had restricted space, meaning less events than normal.

Six players played the 13x13 on the Friday afternoon, with Gold going to Spain's Paco Garcia de la Banda (3 dan). Silver went to Xinyi Lu (4 kyu) and silver to Vincent Frochot (8 kyu) from France. In the 12-player Open on the final Sunday, the Gold was won by Turkish 1 dan, Bulent Tuncel. Silver went to Paco and Bronze on tie-break to Alistair Wall (3 dan). Go players took part in other games too, throught the event, with some awards, such as Natasha Regan's Silver at Hare and Tortoise and Matthew Hathrell's Golds at Lost Cities, Continuo and Poker.

Tournament Name: 
Welsh Open
Tournament Date: 
26 June 2010 - 27 June 2010

For the second weekend running, Yohei Negi ended a tournament equal on wins with two others at the top of the table. This time a tie-breaker was in use and so he won ahead of Matthew Scott and Sandy Taylor by one SOS point, retaining the Welsh Open title he won last year. Also finishing with 4 out of 5, below the bar, were Richard Mullens (6 kyu St Albans) and Richard Scholefield (10 kyu Milton Keynes). 39 players took part, an increase on last year. The weather was glorious, and players enjoyed paddling in the sea, walking along the beach, promenade and hills at the back of Barmouth, and open-air go in front of the venue, the Min-Y-Mor Hotel.

The bar was at 2d. Handicap and no-komi games are in red.

Tournament Name: 
Durham
Tournament Date: 
19 June 2010 - 20 June 2010

The biggest Durham Go Tournament ever saw 54 people gathering at St John's College, Durham for two days and a lot of Go. Having a mere one winner seemed paltry, so in the absence of meaningful tie-breaks, the tournament was won jointly by Matt Reid, Yohei Negi and Matt Crosby, all on five wins.

Scott Owens from Cambridge was the only player with 6 wins, and the other players on five wins were Jamie Taylor and James Hadfield. Prizewinners with four wins were Luke Humphreys, Gregor Welsh, Dave Cantrell, Andre Cockburn, Will Taylor, Edmund Stephen-Smith, Sandy Taylor and Nick Krempel.
