Crumb Takes First at Skip Ascheim Memorial Tournament in Somerville

Monday July 18, 2011

Matthew Crumb 3k topped a field of 24 players at the Massachusetts Go Association’s Skip Ascheim Memorial Tournament, which was held July 17 in Somerville, Massachusetts. Eric Osman 2d (r in photo) was second and John Aspinall 3k (l) was third; Crumb had left by the time the photo was taken. In an email to the Western Massachusetts go club, Osman noted that he upheld the “honor” of the club by going 4-0: “Osman handily felled the honorable Sir Francis Roads of  British Go Association fame, as well as two 7d’s.   ‘I feel my medal is  a bit pre-tarnished’ says Osman, who admits that his first round win was influenced by his 2d opponent putting his own stones in atari at a crucial moment in the game.   ‘These things happen’.”
