Interclubs 2011 results

Dear Belgian Go-players,

The 2011 interclub season has come to an end with an exciting final round.
After the first half of the season Leuven had a strong lead, but in the second half Gent gained the lead. In the decisive final round, Gent won against Leuven with 3-0.

Antwerpen picked up the pace in the second half, but could not help getting third place with 4 point. Leuven got 6 points, and Gent has 8, and takes the interclub cup from Leuven.

Congratulations to all three teams !

This was the first time double rounds were played, due to the "record" number of teams participating. As organiser, my impression is that with three or four teams participating, playing double rounds is feasible if the captains are motivated. A little bit of prompting from the organiser seems to be enough to get all rounds to be played within a good time frame.

I would like to thank Philip Vlummens, Kris Boyen and Marcel Van Herck for speedy and correct transmission of results.

I hope to see a lot of teams in the 2012 interclub tournament !

Robby Goetschalckx,
Interclubs Organiser

Results of the 26th Brussels Tournament

The 26th Brussels Tournament took place on Oct. 29th and 30th in Palais du Midi, Brussels.

The Belgian Go Federation organized it and 77 participants took part. There were players from all around Europe, and even further: Belgium of course, but also Hungary, Germany, France, Great-Britain, Turkey, Finland, Slovakia, Poland, but also Brazil, China and Korea!

It was an Ecup tournament level 4, in five rounds MacMahon.

The last round was very exciting because six top players (Csaba Mero, Chen Lei, Vincent van Gelderen, François Gonze, Simon Billouet and Kang Kyoungnang) had already three wins and one loss; note the achievement of François, Belgian 4d, who managed to beat two 6d.

Finally, after a very long and breath-taking game between Kang and Csaba, that was observed passionately by dozens of players in live but also about 150 players on KGS, Csaba managed a win by 3,5 and took the first place.

It was a great tournament and we hope to have even more players next year. Congratulations to all!
