Alexandre Dinerchtein (Ru/3p) is the new European Champion. Although losing his game against last year champion Catalin Taranu (Ro/5p), he finished 2 SOS-points ahead of Taranu. The competition was, as expected, dominated by the Koreans who occupied the first 5 places. Open European Champion is Kim Eunkuk. Good results for the Belgian players too, especially for Kwinten Missiaen (3k) with 8 points out of 10 games. Only 3 players scored better. The final results can be found here

Cosmic Go League Period 1 Round 3

Here are the results of the 3rd round of our League. The first named had white.

Lucas Neirynck - Olivier Drouot : 1-0
Thomas Connor - François Gonze : 0-1
Daniel French - Kevin Prist : 0-1
Kevin Annachachibi - Aron Safran : 1-0
Cédric Duvinage - Juliette Brault : 0-1

Christopher Annachachibi was very fair-play and propose himself to be
bye this round because there was an odd number of players.

So far, 25 players have participated in the tournament, which is a
great success (there are 89 players in the rating list)!

See you next time!
