    Julius has won his 4th round game, but as yet no kifu appears to be available.

  2. Steve says:

    Congrats Julius – that’s 2 victories over fellow 1-dan’s so far, and losses against a 5-dan and a 6-dan.

    His next opponent is Ricardo QUINTERO ZAZUETA, a 5-dan Mexican playing in his 7th WAGC.

  3. Steve says:

    Erm, my bad. His 5th round opponent wasn’t the Mexican. He actually played Mladen Smud of Croatia. Unfortunately, Julius lost his game against this 3-dan. Julius is currently placed 47th.

  4. Steve says:

    Julius went down in Round 6 as well, losing to 4-dan New Zealander, Ming Yuan Wang.

    After 6 rounds, Julius is placed 51st, and he should have good chances in his Round 7 match tomorrow morning. His opponent is a 1-dan from Chile, Juan Pablo Schweitzer Kirsinger.

  5. Steve says:

    I expect many people at the WAGC are being surprised by the good showing of the Singapore representative, Ting Yu Yen. This is his first entry in the tournament, and entered as a 2-dan, he has 4 out of 6 wins so far, putting him 15th. He’s one of only 2 players in the top 20 ranked below 5-dan – the other is the Colombian representative – a 4-dan in 19th position.

    The Swiss Patrick Gruter is another 2-dan showing a great performance on 4/6, positioned at 21st.
