After 1997,2002,2004, Sébastien Koch (Ko Go Club) is for the fourth time Swiss Go Champion. Congrats! Félicien Mazille (Ishi) and Sébastien Ott (Ko Go) had in fact the same number of points, but the cruel placement criteria (SOS) had to designate only one. Congrats also to them, they really made a great tournament. The tournament took place in the magnificient village of Veyrier near Geneva. As usual in this cold spring 2013, the sun appeared quite rarely, but enough to take this photo at a few meters from the salle communale.
Thank you to Cho Seok Bin 8d that was present all the week-end and analysed a lot games, like the two winner's one on the picture. His strength is amazing and even the strongest swiss have many things to learn. Finally thank you to the city of Veyrier, the Veyrier/Ko Go Club comitee (Jeremy, Sandra, Guillaume, Jean-Marc et Tetsuo) and all participants. Next year, we are impatient to attend a 2 days week-end in Ticino, a place many of us also love. There will probably be also 7 rounds but a little quicker. Moreover the tournament will be earlier in order to avoid exams. Finally, on the international level, Ott will go to KPMC, Praz to WAGC. ADW Photos, Results, EGD
Das diesjährige Go for Luzern wurde von Brian Kleiner mit einem glatten 5-0 gewonnen, vor Lorenz Trippel (4-1) und Sylvain Praz (3-2). In den Spielpausen konnte man sich wie gewohnt das Gespielte von Hwang In-seong reviewen lassen um etwas mehr Licht hinter den Gewinn oder Verlust zu bringen, insbesondere dann sehr erhellend wenn beide Spieler sich eine grosse Chance über die Hälfte des Spieles entgehen haben lassen!

Victor Bogdanov won the the tournament with a clean 5-0. Sébastien Ott came 3rd and Raymond Georg Snatzke a 3 dan from Germany 2nd. The campus of the EPFL again proved to be an excellent tournament location and this time the weather helped to probably make it the most beautiful day of the year so far. The mountains were close in the distant horizon, the sun submerged everything with a energetic warmth! A detailed report can be found on Wbaduk. Results, photos.

Der Go-Club Winterthur kann dieses Jahr auf sein 10-jähriges Bestehen zurückblicken. Am 10. Januar 2003 wurde der Club aus einer losen Ansammlung von Go-Spielern aus Winterthur und Umgebung gegründet. Zum freudigen Ereignis lud der Go-Club Winterthur am letzten Montag deshalb zum Jubiläums-Spieleabend ein. Dieser wurde gut besucht; der Präsident spendierte sogar einen Umtrunk. Wir hoffen auch in Zukunft Treffpunkt für alle Go-Spieler und Interessierten zu sein und freuen uns über jeden Besuch von anderen Clubs. Spieleabend im Go-Club Winterthur ist jeweils der Montag im Bistro Fahrenheit Winterthur. Für mehr Informationen: www.wintigo.org
The Swiss Winter Go Camp was held again in collaboration with the Yunguseng Dojang and attracted 16 go players to the train station Montbovon Hôtel de la gare. It snowed again all weekend and the temperature was below zero almost all the time. We had lots of fun playing Rengo, 13x13 group games against Hwang In-seong. Listening to our master lectures' learning new openings, 1-2-3 reading, and the pincer technique in some local situations. The little league tournament with 30 min thinking time was won by Peter from Zurich and Oriol who came all the way from Spain to our camp, congrats! Photos, EGD
In a small survey, i asked people whether they came to Active Go for eating or for playing, maybe they answered as for a joke, but indeed 80% answered for eating, and Wang Jie, the owner of the restaurant Lin Xiang, can be proud. This year we had no crispy Beef but many other nice things. Note that nobody drank any alcohol. Incidentally we had some go fights, and 3 players got 6 points on 7. Wolff lost against his teacher Inseong, Ott against Wolff, and Inseong against the morning alarm clock that failed to wake him up enough early for the first round. One can notice, that the handicap -1 give spice to many games but change only moderately the final result. A big thank you to Jeremy and Sandra, for whom it was the first and perfect organisation, after 10 years of Wolff, and 3 of Sébastien Koch. By the way Sébastien brought his lovely familly, including two future talented boys that may soon participate. Organised by Ko Go Club. Reported by Lovebach. Results, Photos

In the online school the students gather once a week in the evening to play a game for the league. After the game is played Hwang In-seong joins the room and reviews some of the games. He has years of teaching experience and is himself a very strong player (№ 1 in Europe). At the end of the month 2 players from each league move up to the higher league and 2 move down to the lower league. Sounds very competitive but it's mainly to make people play lots of and serious games. 3 evenings each month In-Seong gives a lecture to inspire the participants to try out new things.
