A disappointing result for me at the KPMC, with only two wins. Here’s a round-up of day 1:
Game one started well when I managed to get a large lead against Hatime Araki, with him having nowhere to turn his thick wall into the 50 points of territory he needed. Until I somehow managed to create a way for him to win by stupidly starting a fight too close to his thickness. Game two was against Fredrick Balwit of the USA – usually the Americans send a strong player, but this time their representative was only 1 kyu and I managed to win. Game three was against Jurgen Suntinger 3d from Austria. Again I had an easily won position which I somehow manage to botch by making some real bloopers in byo-yomi. So 1/3 at the end of day 1; I’ll try to do a round-up of day two later.
