    The Sheffield Univeristy Go Tournament was held on Saturday 14th May. This was the very first Go tournament held in Sheffield since the University Go Society was revived earlier this academic year. It was a great start for the society, with 22 attendees. It was held in a room rented out from the University, and the many windows allowed for some lovely sunshine for the players to compete in. Boards, stones and clocks were kindly loaned by the BGA, and we had more than enough sets for the players. Three rounds were held over the day.

    The UK team beat Croatia 4-0 in the Pandanet Go European Team Championship on 24th May to give the team its first and only win of the season. Congratulations to Daniel Hu, Bruno Poltronieri, Alex Kent and Des Cann for this convincing win in the last round. To avoid relegation they needed South Africa to lose their last round match, but South Africa defeated a weakened Italian team 3-1. This meant that the UK team ended bottom of League B and have therefore been relegated to League C for the 2022-2023 season. Germany and Austria both won to take first and second places respectively. Finland also won to end third on tie-break from Italy.

    Not The London Open ran for the third time over the early May Bank Holiday weekend at the London Go Centre. The professional-in-residence was Stephanie Yin from the New York Institute of Go, shown right, informally assisted by Mateusz Surma.

    57 people entered, ranging from 7 dan to 20 kyu, with some interesting skirmishes anticipated, especially above the bar. And the organisers were not disappointed. With Yaoling Yang (5d) falling to Zeyu Qiu (5d); Zeyu falling to Lukas Podpera, (7p) and Lukas falling to Yaoling, it was looking like the tournament would be decided by scissors, paper, stone…
