Marek Kaminski 3d (r) of Poznan swept the Korean Ambassador’s Cup in Warsaw last weekend, qualifying for the Korean Prime Minister Cup later this year in Korea. Polish Champion Leszek Soldan 5d finished second with one loss and Agnieszka Kacprzyk 1d of Bebnów won bronze on sos. Kaminski won the Young Masters League last month at the age of 23, making this his last year in the League. In the second round the Young Master defeated current Polish Champion Soldan.  “This win gave me the flow to fly to Korea; all my games were tough,” he told the E-Journal. “But our real Young Master is Mateusz Surma, the European Youth Champion. I hope to meet and play him in Korea!” where Surma currently studies go. The tournament was organised by the club Kawangarda in the South of the capital Warsaw. Click here for full results.
