"Knives Out" at Edinburgh Open Tournament

Edinburgh Open
Sat, 9 Sep 2023

The Edinburgh Open was again held at the "St Columba's by the Castle" Episcopal Church Hall. This year, nice weather meant they could use the garden of the church hall as a review space. Overall turnout was up on last year with 29 players and pleasingly included three first-time tournament players.

The bar was set at 2k, which made for a very competitive field of seven players who could win the competition. Local player Grzegorz Kudla (2k) won the tournament with three wins from three games, following a tense final game with Ai Guan (Birmingham 1k).

The other winners of three games out of three were both also from the local club; their prizes were film-related this year as the Edinburgh Club has been meeting in the Cameo Cinema Bar over the past year (a capital idea, we feel).
Getting a Picturehouse Voucher and DVD of a film featuring Go were Jayme Ehlers (9k) with “A Beautiful Mind”, Jacek Sojka (13k) “Pi" and Grzegorz Kudla “Knives Out”. Other prizes went to those in the top group winning two games: Ai Guan, Matthias Lochbrunner, Saiyuan Wu and Marc Stoehr. Miles Warren won a bottle of beer in the “Guess the Films” competition for correctly guessing the DVDs that were awarded.
