Jan Ramon wins 2019 Brussels tournament

Jan Ramon triumphed unbeaten in the 2019 edition of our Brussels tournament.

The big surprise was the 2nd place by Sven Cuyts (1k), who won against two 3d and two 2-d competitors !

Dick Riedeman (3d), best player with 3 wins by the SOS tie-breaker, completed the podium.

Beside Sven, 4 (other) participants got 4 wins: Kenny Debacq, Ondrej Skacel (from...Czechia) en two members of Riedeman's family. Congratulation to them !

In the history of the Brussels tournament, it is the 1st time that a kyu player ended on the podium (see: https://www.gofed.be/en/tournament/brussels). Without willing to minimize Sven's impressive achievement, this was only possible because of the desappointing small number of "dan" competitors (#6!).
Actually , there were only 38 participants in total, also the smallest ever number for a Brussels tournament.
This being said, all of them have had good time...and those who were absent are wrong !
