Victor Chow in Oza final

Well, as expected, Victor Chow (7d) won his 3 games in the Toyota-Denso African Oza yesterday to win the winner’s bracket, thus claiming his place in the African representative match of the African Oza. In the losers bracket, Konrad Scheffler (1d), the main hope of the Western Cape, suffered an early defeat, losing to Tristen Taylor (1k). Lloyd Rubidge (3k) took up Konrad’s slack by defeating Tristen in turn. Lloyd faces Cheng in a semi-final of the loser’s bracket this morning. In the other semi-final, Ben Gale (3d), will face Fouad Tehhani (4k) of Morocco, who has done well by eliminating two 3-kyus, Bernard Broens and Andre Connell.

The current tournament table for the African Oza is available here.

The final of the losers bracket will be played early this afternoon, followed by the African representative match, at around 15h45. We hope to broadcast some of today’s games on KGS, in the English Room – look for username “africanoza”.

The match of the South African Open this morning (round 4) is Victor Chow against his 5-dan fiancee, Zhou Ya (Aki Zhou), in a game that will likely decide the winner of the tournament. Aki beat Aketa Katsuyuki (6d) by 4.5 points yesterday afternoon, in round 3. If Victor wins this match, he will probably play Aketa this afternoon in round 5.
