Monday July 28, 2014

After the first two rounds of the European Go Congress, there are only three Europeans with perfect scores: Ilya Shikshin from Russia, Fan Hui from France and Cristian Pop from Romania. Also undefeated are Yulin Tong, Chi-min Oh, Chen Wang, Young-Sam Kim and Zexiang Sui (click here for latest results).

The MLily-WeiqiTV European Go Congress – the 58th edition of the EGC – is being held July 26th through August 9th in Sibiu, Romania.

Alexander Dinerstein (left), several-time European champion faced Fan Hui (right), last year’s winner, in the second round. “Fan Hui won by 3.5 points but according to several players there, Dinerstein must have made a mistake because the feeling was that the Russian was ahead.” Click here for the latest EGC blog reports.
