Cheadle Hulme Girl wins Pair Go

European Go Congress

Congratulations to Lizzy Pollitt (facing the camera), 18 kyu from Cheadle Hulme School, for winning Group E of the Pair Go tournament at the annual 2-week European Go Congress, in Brussels this year.

Partnering a 2 dan from China, Li Feng, they won 5 out of their 6 games, including the final. Their prizes - presented by Martin Stiassny, EGF President - were nice wood-mounted shields plus a cash prize, on top of the Pair Go T-shirts generously awarded to all competitors.

It's been a successful week for Lizzy, on her debut EGC, as she also won 3 of her 4 games in the Main tournament - the Open European Championship Main Tournament. We wish her, and her school pals Amy Upton and Tom Bradbury, further success now at the weekend tournament. The same goes to all 26 UK players attending the congress, out of 885 participants from dozens of countries including, of course, many Asian ones.

All the EGC results and news are updated frequently as the congress progresses; if checking up on our players, please search for either UK or GB.
