Interclub Results 2020

The results of the 2020 interclub are in. We had 6 participating clubs this year Ath,Phénix, Hasselt, Gent, Leuven and Pantin. Leuven was ultimately victorious with Phénix and Hasselt in second and third place respectively.

Unfortunately we had to void a large number of matches because the players where not paying members of the federation. This had a large impact on the result, changing the final winner. Hopefully we can work to avoid this in future interclubs.

Kim Young-Sam wins unbeaten the 2nd Corona Cup

The 2nd edition of the Corona Cup was very successful: no less than 400 (!) players participated in this tournament, played on-line due to the Covid crisis (let us hope there will never be a 3rd edition ! ;-).

Like the 1st edition, organized during the 1st lock-down, the Korean ex-insei Kim Young-Sam (8-d) won unbeaten. He confirms more than ever his leading place in the European rating list.

Silver medal was Artem Kachanovski, who was the only top competitor with 5 wins.

Artem ended ahead of four players with 4 wins:
- Ilya Shikchin,
- Lucas Podpera (who organized the tournament),
- Anton Chernykh
- and Kim Seong-Jim (who was beaten by the the other Kim, but also, surprisingly enough, by a mere 5-d).

Our country fellow Lucas Neirynck ends 8th with a 3/6 score.

3rd round of the European Team Championship: Belgium crushed by the Netherlands (0-4)

Things are going worse and worse for the Belgian team (Lucas, Lucman, Gabriel, Sven): our guys lost heavily to the Dutch team (0-4), despite the presence of our champion, Lucas Neirynck.
But Lucas was confronted to one of the European legendary player, Rob Van Zeijst (7-d) and lost.
And the 3 other games were imbalanced on paper, with three Dutch 6-dan opposed to our low dan Belgian guys.
(note: Gabriel wrote in the FaceBook page of the BGF (https://www.facebook.com/groups/100421440086165/) that he and Lucman missed opportunities to win their game)

Belgium remains of course at the last place in the B-league. :-(
