Pandanet Go European Team Championship
Pandanet
18 February 2014

We managed to repeat our result from 2011, although we're now both in League C, not League B...

Andrew failed for us on Board 1. His opponent, whom he had beaten in the first season of the league in 2011, played some rather strange and bad moves in the opening and Andrew spent rather too long trying to punish them. Andrew didn't get much advantage (if any) and got annoyed.

First to finish was Martha McGill's game against Rogelio Gomes. Unfortunately some edge stones got captured and Martha had to resign. On board one Andrew Simons claimed our only win against Paco Garcia de la Banda.

The European Go Championship was won by Fan Hui, 7d, who had recently gained French nationality. He beat Slovakia's Pavol Lisy in the final to take the title. Fan Hui also took the Open title as there were not lots of strong Korean players there. He was also second in the Weekend Tournament, behind Russia's Ilja Shikshin.

Pandanet Go European Team Championship
Olsztyn
26 July 2013 - 27 July 2013

The Czech Republic won the finals of the Pandanet Go European Team Championship, held at the European Go Congress in Olsztyn, Poland. The top four teams from the A-League played each other over three rounds to determine the winner. Unfortunately a clock problem on board two of Czechia v Ukraine in round one meant that game having to be replayed.
