European Youth Team League
OGS
15 May 2021

The team from London did very well in the prototype European Youth Team League which featured teams from the UK and Germany. Games were played on OGS and each fixture had a round of handicap games followed by a round of even games, all on 13x13. London had beaten Chedle Hulme A and Düsseldorf to meet Frankfurt in the final on 15th May.

In the match the first round ended 2-1 to the Germans, and the second round had the same score, meaning Frankfurt were winners 4-2. For London, Scott Cobbold won his handicap game and Gene Wong won his even game. Lea Wong narrowly lost both her games.

Alex Kent wrote of his game against Javier-Aleksi Savolainen: I lost my game by resignation. The opening had an interesting bit of symmetry on the bottom side which meant it was miai to lean on the each of our 3-4 stones. I gave my opponent too much scope to lean on (and potentially separate) the top side, so I fell a bit behind. My assessment was that I was nearly alive in the centre so my opponent's wall wasn't worth as much, but this proved to be inaccurate! I should probably have tried to treat my central stones more lightly.

President - Toby Manning
Treasurer - Richard Wheeldon
Secretary - Colin Williams

Nominated to be Council Members are:

CCTV World Youth Amateur
Yike
31 October 2020 - 18 April 2021

The first CCTV World Youth Amateur Online Weiqi Tournament was in two sections, the first being for youth teams. Jayden Ng, Scott Cobbold and Caleb Monk played the seven qualifying rounds over each weekend from late October to mid-December on the Chinese server Yike. They beat Colombia, lost to China, France and close matches against Croatia and Hungary. They then beat Argentina and Slovakia to end thirteenth out of 22. The teams making the knockout stage were both China teams, Singapore, Russia, France, Ukraine, Malaysia and Canada. The teams from Germany, Thailand, USA and Hungary finished just above the UK. The semis saw the two China teams face off and Singapore take on and beat Russia.

In the 26-player junior individual section our player Ryan Zhang did very well. He won his first three beating Yuki Kouchi of Japan, Liu Zijia of China and Julie Blondeau of France. He then lost to Vsevolod Ovsiienko of Ukraine and Takuya Kawabata of Japan.

A number of further papers have been added to the AGM documents list, mostly relating to the motions on the agenda. They are quite short, and It would be very helpful if you could read them prior to the AGM. The documents list is just below the agenda on https://www.britgo.org/history/councilnews (you need to be logged in as a member)

Also added is a short paper asking you to consider standing for a place on the BGA Council. We have a number of Council members not standing again this year, so this year in particular we are looking for other BGA members to come forwards and assist with the running of the BGA. Any of the current Council members would be very happy to answer any questions you might have about what being in the Council is like. If you do decide to stand nominations must be received by the end of Friday 23rd April.

The usual officer’s reports will be added in the next few days.
