European Go Congress Groningen

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

Belgian championship preliminaries 2009

The results of the preliminaries of the Belgian championship:

In the first round there were two surprising results, with Daniel French (6k) winning against Kristof Bossee (1d) and Kenny Debacq (7k) against Michael Meeschaert (1k).

After the first day there was only one player with no lost games, Lucas Neirynck, who finished the entire tournament without losing a single game.
The first three places were certain after 6 rounds, but the last round was still exciting to determine fourth and fifth place. Only when the final game finished (Kristof Bossee won by just half a point from Dr. Wong Chi Yiu), were the reduced SOS, SOS and SODOS clear enough to determine the people who placed themselves for the finals.

  1. Lucas Neirynck
  2. Wang Yue
  3. Christopher Annachachibi
  4. Michael Meeschaert
  5. Daniel French
  6. Kristof Bossee
  7. Wong Chi Yiu

Interclub - intermediate result after round 4

Dear Go friends,

this week the fourth round of interclub was played (except for the games between Pantin and Leuven, as Pantin was not able to send a team to Leuven and lost by forfait).

This leads to exciting new results, as we have a new top:
Namur has taken the lead with 11 points, leaving the rest far behind. Leuven became second with 8 points (and 23 weighted points), before Antwerpen and Pantin who share third place with also 8 points but only 19 weighted points. Gent has 7 points, Le Chaff 6.

With one more round to play, nothing is certain yet ...
