Last weekend, UCC’s Mardyke Pavilion hosted the 9th annual Cork Go Tournament. The turnout was modest, with a total of 11 people participating across the two days. A shame, since the atmosphere, and the weather, were great!

In a break with recent years, the tournament was Class B, with no bar set. Attendees ranged from 2k down to first-time tournament goers.

Geoffrey (FR 3k) waltzed through the event with 5/5 wins. Second place was secured by Piotr (PL 6k) with 4 wins. Third went to Brian (IE 15k) a new local player. The full results table can be found on the EGD.

Kudos to Mike, first time tournament director, for pulling off the event so smoothly. Looks like it will be in good hands for the next few years. Unless I am miscounting, 2016 will be the milestone 10th tournament – no pressure ^^

UCC Go Tournament 2013 Results

 UCC  Comments Off on UCC Go Tournament 2013 Results

Now that the much anticipated UCC tournament is over, results have appeared on the EGD.

With a smaller turnout than in recent years, the tournament had quite a cosy feel to it. Atypically, the weather held up pretty well, with not a hint of the rain, wind, or bloody freezing temperatures that marked previous events. Thanks once again to the crew of the UCC Club for pulling off a smoothly run affair.

The IGA has also posted a few comments on the event.
