Tongzhou Cai wins Scottish in Glasgow

Scottish Open
Glasgow University
30 May 2015 - 31 May 2015

The third consecutive Scottish Open in Glasgow, and the second sponsored by the local Confucius Institute, saw 23 different players converge on Glasgow University.

After the dust had settled Tongzhou (Joe) Cai (3d Glasgow) remained undefeated on 6 wins to take custody of the cup, plus £50 cash and chocolate truffles.

Below the bar, the 4-8 kyu division saw a tussle for the prize between local clubmates Niall Paterson (5k) and Joseff Thomas (8k). The latter prevailed on 5 wins to take £40 cash and a Go book.

The 9+ kyu division produced a clear winner in Alasdair Clarke (9k Edinburgh), on 4 wins, also receiving £40 cash and a Go book.

Everyone else on 3 wins or more received a bottle or chocs: on 5 wins was the tournament runner-up Alistair Wall (2d Wanstead), on 4 wins was Niall Paterson (5k Glasgow), and on 3 wins Matthew Scott (2d Glasgow), Rab Fulton (1k Glasgow), Toby Manning (2d Leicester), Jurriaan Dijkman (3k Skye), Roger Daniel (4k London), Phil Smith (5k) and Greg Cox (10k Dundee).

The experiment of moving to the weekend after the Bank holiday resulted in a slight drop in numbers, so it will probably not be repeated.

P.S. a Kindle was left behind at the venue, contact any organiser to arrange return.
