Winner of the 2008 open european go championship is (expectfully) one
of the 7-d Coreans.

Winner of this edition is Park Jong Wook, only player with 9 victories.
2nd is another 7-d Corean, and 3rd the Taiwanese competitor, Lai Yu-
Cheng (who ended 2nd in the 2004 WAGC and 5th in the 2007 WAGC).

The best European player is Catalin Taranu (5-p) from Romania, who
ended as 6th with 7 victories, just one litlle SOS-point ahead of
Alexander Dinerstein (3-p), and 4 SOS-points ahead of the other Russian
favourite and winner last year, Ilya Chikchine.

Our Corean guest, Kim Jung Hyeop, made pretty good with 8 victories
(among wich one against Dinerstein)!

The results of the participating Belgian were rather good.
In particular, Thomas Connor did very well as 2-d with 7 victories, and
is now promoted to 3-d level. Congratulations to him !

Korean student & Ambassador's cup

A Korean student (who is a strong baduk player) is interested in studying in Belgium for one year. We are looking for accomodation. Any suggestions for free or cheap accomodation in a university city would be very appreciated. This would be a nice opportunity to have a strong go teacher.

This year the BGF and the Korean embassy in Belgium will jointly organize a tournament called "Korean Ambassador's Cup" to directly select the Belgian representative at the Korean Prime Minister Cup, to be held in October in Korea. More details will follow.
