In a nail-biting game, Matthew Macfadyen beat Nick Krempel on September 17 in London to retain the title of British Go Champion.  “In an exciting third and deciding game, Macfadyen killed a group early on and held on against everything Nick Krempel could throw at him,” reports Tony Atkins. “Eventually Nick had to resign allowing Matthew to be champion for another year.” Game records of the championship match are available in the KGS Archives.
