Rockets and Go on November 5th
The rockets of the National Space Centre were appropriate for November 5th, but luckily none were fired during the East Midlands Go Tournament. Chong Han (5 dan) from Loughborough was the winner beating Francis Roads, Jon Diamond and Tony Atkins along the way. Two other of the 40 players won all three games, namely Chris Bryant (9 kyu) from St Albans club and Paul Reade (14 kyu) from Leamington. Francis Roads and Alistair Wall were awarded plaques for supporting the small small-board side tournament.
