This season Pandanet Go European Team Championship has come to an end. The swiss team finished before last in the league B, and had to play the relegation match against South Africa. On the paper, it looked like a very difficult task, as the South African players all had better rating than the player facing them on our side. But it all started very well, as Benoît took home very quickly our first point. South Africa equalized, as Victor Guang Chow (7D) won against John on board one. But it would remain their only win, as Flavien and Félicien could both defeat their opponent. On the last board, problems with connections made the situation confused (both players saw that it was the opponent's turn...), but as it would not change the result of the match, South Africa didn't opposed the loss on time for them that finally occured. With this nice 4-1 victory, Switzerland will remain in the league B. Many thanks to all the players who played during the season. Armel-David will be eligible to play from now on, so we will be back stronger. Let's hope for great results next year!

L’Open IGC s’est déroulé dans la meilleure des ambiances avec des joueurs âgés de 7 à 77 ans venus de toute l’Europe même si l’hôte Suisse était le plus représenté. Avec 20 participants, le tournoi a vu Yue Li (5 dan) s’imposer grâce à 5 victoires durement acquises durant ce week-end. Flavien Aubelle s’est également distingué en arrachant la 2ème place du tournoi lors de l’ultime ronde où il vainquit Sébastien Koch, finalement 3ème. Les suivent Félicien Mazille (4ème) et James Nguyen (5ème). Dans les plus jeunes, la récompense revient à Guillaume Lob ! À noter lors de ce tournoi les 5 victoires acquises par Victor Aubelle pour sa première participation à un tournoi. L’Ishi Go tient à remercier tout particulièrement les clubs de Genève pour leur matériel ainsi que Lausanne et plus particulièrement James Nguyen et Jérémy Toutain pour l’effort de dernière minute qu’ils ont fourni et sans qui le tournoi n’aurait pu avoir lieu. Également un grand merci à Lorenz Trippel, qui nous aidé pour la mise en place du tournoi. L’Ishi Go espère que vous avez passé un agréable tournoi et vous donne rendez-vous l’année prochaine !! EGD
Swiss Championship at Boltigen
With a backdrop of early Spring in this beautiful Alpen valley, the Swiss Go heavyweights, joined by a pair of strong contenders from the U.S. and Russia, battled it out in Boltigen for both the Tournament and Swiss Championships. After the dust had cleared following the 7th round, Armel-David Wolff (4d) emerged as the victor, with a single SOS point advantage over John Walch (4d). A big assist went to Sylvain Praz (1d), who defeated David Cho (4d) in the last round to knock him out of contention for the top spot. Sylvain, who took fourth place, proved once again that he is ready to compete with the best in Switzerland. David, who travelled all the way from Massachussetts, took third place, and Viktor Bogdanov (3d), from Russia, hung on for fifth place. Arnaud Pilet (6k) earned himself an honorable mention with a very impressive five victories, including wins over a 1dan (with 1-handicap) and a 2kyu (no handicap)! Armel-David, as Swiss Champion for 2015, will be representing Switzerland in either the WAGC in China or the KPMC in Korea. Flavien Aubelle won the honor to serve as second representative and will also play in one of the two international tournaments. During the annual meeting of the Swiss Go Association, it was determined that next year’s Swiss Championship will take place in Luzern, followed by Ascona in 2017. Photos, EGD, Results
Auch dieses Jahr lud der Luzern GO Club zum bereits 10. Luzern GO Turnier ein. Das Wetter spielte für einmal nicht so richtig mit. Trotz der kalten Witterung beeindruckte der einmalige Ausblick über den Vierwaldstättersee und die Stimmung in den gemütlichen Räumen blieb sommerlich warm. Gewonnen wurde das Turnier vom Russen Viktor Bogdanov dicht gefolgt von der Koreanerin Semi Lee. Auf dem dritten Platz und bester Schweizer: Silvain Praz aus Neuchâtel. Publikumsliebling blieb einmal mehr der Koreanische 8 Dan Spieler In-Seong Hwang, welcher die Turnierpartien analysierte und kommentierte. Fotos, EGD

Un immense merci à Jeremy, Sandra et à Wang sans qui rien ne serait possible. Bravo à Sébastien Koch qui a terminé premier! Photos

Septembre 2012 : L'objectif de l'Atelier Jeu de Go de l'Université de Genève est de découvrir et d'apprendre le Go pour les débutants, et de se perfectionner et de pratiquer dans la bonne humeur pour les initiés. Tous les lundis à Uni Mail en salle S040. Cours (60.- / semestre) : 18h15-19h. Jeu libre (gratuit) : 19-20h.
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. 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.

Hi all, I just finished up a fairly long game on KGS against a 7k with lots of time spent on reading and direction of play questions and was hoping for any input on what I missed and where I mis-stepped. Like I said, the game was fairly slow so I ...
After stagnating at 4-5 kyu for some time, I recently jumped a couple ranks and found myself a bit in over my head at 2 kyu. This game was more peaceful than most of my games, which is something I'm trying to work on (Good!). However, I feel l...
