Not the London Open Held Alongside Challengers' League

Not the London Open
London Go Centre
26 May 2018 - 28 May 2018

Over the first three days of the Challengers' League the London Go Centre also hosted the first Not the London Open Tournament. 22 players took part, but not all every day. Winner was Weijin Chen (5d London) with six out of six (emulating his clean sweep at the last LOGC). Second was Finland's Jesse Savo (4d) with five wins and Zihe Zhao (4d Oxford) came third. Czech player Jan Adamek (10k) won five games, Alexandre Kirchherr (6k) won four and Sebastian Pountney (7k) won four out of five.


On the Saturday evening the organisers showed the documentary movie "The Surrounding Game", which follows the quest for the first American Go professional. Appropriately also at the event was Pavol Lisy, who was the first European Go professional, analysing games and giving lectures. They also held a small lightning tournament on the Sunday evening.
