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 ^^
