2nd Pandanet European Team Championship 9th (and last) round 9: Belgium - Switzerland 4-0

16 May 2012

Belgium (composed this time by the strongest team possible: Lucas Neyrinck, Jan Ramon, Nelis Vets and Kwinten Missaen) ends beautifully this 2nd edition of Pandanet European Team Championship by crushing Switzerland 4-0.

So, Belgium ends as 4th out of 10 team in the 2nd league. Even if this is not enough to go up into 1st league, this is quite a good performance for our small go country...

Please note that the 4 best European teams of the 1st league (Rusland, Ukraine, Tchequia, France) will compete again each others in the next European Go Congress (Bonn, end July). Rusland, who has dominated the competition up till now, is the great favourite. More generaly, the domination of the East European countries is impressive.

here are the complete results:
