British Pair Go Held in the North-West
The British Open Pair Go Championships were held this year in Frodsham on 10th June, home town of new organiser Pat Ridley. In the Main Tournament, the winning pair was Yanming Zhang and Yue Matt Xi, currently studying at UCL, who beat Wai Yi Chung and Ho Yeung Woo in the final round. The Handicap Tournament was a closely fought affair, with four pairs having two wins; however, Shobita Bhumbra and Tim James took first place with a slightly better tie-break score. Though they were not successful over the board, former organisers Jenny Rofe-Radcliffe and Francis Roads won both the traditional quiz (a fiendishly difficult one on currencies kindly set by Tony Atkins) and the Best Dressed Pair prize. Olivia Jennison and Claude Robinson also received a prize as the Best Dressed Junior Pair. Results Gallery
