Tournament News

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.

Shrewsbury (3/10/94)

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 tournament.

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).

Feng Yun

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.

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.
