A couple of weeks ago the second round of the Pandanet Go European Team Championship 2016/2017 was played. South Africa, currently in the C League, faced Bulgaria. This time we managed a clean sweep, winning all four games. Andrew has reviewed his game, and Victor has kindly reviewed not only his own game, but Andrew’s review as well.

A couple of weeks ago the first round of the Pandanet Go European Team Championship 2016/2017 was played. South Africa, currently in the C League, faced Lithuania, one of the stronger teams in the C League. There were some hard-fought, close games, and we managed a 2-2 result. Both Chris and Andrew have reviewed their games, and Victor has kindly reviewed not only his own game, but their reviews as well.
These games take place on average once every three weeks (schedule here) online on IGS. I have found that watching one or two of the games live gives one a much better feel for the game that really helps one understand the reviews, and this is a good way to help one improve.
In what I believe was the largest ever purse at a European go event, this last weekend saw the holding of the first European Grandslam event. This event was open to the four professional EGF players, and the top eight amateurs by EGF rating. Ilya Shikshin 1p won the event and with it 10,000 Euros. There were also significant prizes for the lower places.
The picture shows Ilya receiving his 10,000 Euro cheque.
