Lloyd WINS against the 5 dan from Vietnam!
Amazing game. I played more solidly than I normally do and when the time came for me to attack his invasion I was strong enough. He also played very solidly, I don’t think he liked fighting because he gave way every time I pushed. There were a few mistakes in the end game for both of us, swinging a couple of points either way. One of the referees helped us count because it was so close. I won by 2.5 points.
I am now on 4 wins out of 7. I just beat my target
In the final round, Lloyd lost to the 5d from Austria, Bernhard Scheid, for a remarkable final place of 29th (out of 60), with 4 wins out of 8. Lloyd was the highest placed kyu player, with 15 dan players below him.
