Pandanet Go European Team Championship
Pandanet
13 January 2015

Our match against South Africa, probably our strongest opponents in League C, was a nerve tingler, coming down to the closest of all possible finishes.

We managed to put out our top three players for the occasion, Andrew Simons, Jon Diamond and Des Cann, with Paul Taylor (number 6 on our players list) playing on board 4.

Paul was struggling a bit in the opening, but captured a group slightly unexpectedly and was going happily along into yose with about a 15 point lead when he missed the implications of a throw-in and lost an 11 stone group though dame-zumari. Sigh...

Still, Des Cann (pictured right) soon made up for this, as he says: "I had quite a safe game. He made two low extensions from his hoshi, so I invaded in sente and then shoulder hit.

Online League Season 6 2014
KGS
GoGoD shield
1 April 2014 - 20 December 2014

Congratulations to Centrol London Go Club A team, Franciso Divers, Michael Webster and Chuck Fisher, for winning the 2014 season of the online league ahead of Belfast and claiming back the GoGoD shield, which they last held in 2011, from Edinburgh.

The second division was won by Cornish Rogues (Paul Massey, John Culmer and Rob White), who will be moving up to the first division next year, narrowly beating the Three Counties team.

We are starting to take bookings for the next season of the online league, which we hope to start promptly in April, so please could everyone who wants to take part get in touch with me at jmc AT toad.me.uk to confirm that they want to play.

Whilst we like to have teams associated with clubs, people on their own are very welcome to join up with an existing team which is low on members, so please don't hold back.

Congress details have been on our website calendar page for some time.

We have reserved some rooms at the venue hotel, and just one single room is left from our allocation, as of a few minutes ago! This will be released in the next few days.

If you wish to book at the venue, you should do so right away. The Hotel telephone number is: 01743 499955 Email: reservations@prince-rupert-hotel.co.uk

There are only a few hotels in the town centre (plenty further out) and wherever you choose to stay, it will probably pay to plan ahead.

As to the tournament itself, the early bird discount runs up to 31st January.

Any questions to britishopen@britgo.org
