Chinese Players Dominate in Cambridge

Sat, 16 Mar 2024

Cambridge’s annual Trigantius tournament was again held at the excellent St Philip’s Church venue. This time it was a week later than usual, on 16th March. Regrettably this was now out of term for local students, making attendance of 61 lower than 2023’s 79 players.

Top results were again dominated by Chinese students. The winner was Zeyu Qiu (5d Birmingham) - shown left with the trophy. Second was Zihao He (3d) and third was Tianyi Chen (6d Liverpool), squeezing out Lucretiu Calota into fourth. Other prizewinners on three wins out of three were Matt Reid (1k Cambridge), who was also best kyu grade player second year running, Jonathan Grant (2k Cambridge) , Spyros Roumeliotis (6k Cambridge) , Justin Leung (8k Tonbridge School) and Alida Chan (9k Tonbridge School). Bob Baldwin (11k Stevenage) was best double digit kyu player. Results

Paul Smith also organised a 13x13 side event, mostly competed by Cambridge Juniors who finished their main games early.
