3rd Sportaccord World Mind Games

SportaccordThis December I participated in the Sportaccord World Mind Games in Beijing, China. A much more selective tournament than in 2008, the competition was very strong.

After losing my first game in the Women’s Individual tournament to Rina Fujisawa,2P, of Japan, I won my next two matches which guaranteed me a top-5 finish. In the Pair Go tournament, Ilya and I defeated Europe 1 team only to lose in the 5-6th place game to Europe 2.

Congratulations to all that participated in the tournament and thanks to the tournament organizers who made the tournament a success.

This past Canada Day weekend I travelled to Toronto and played simultaneous games as a guest Professional player.  Other professionals included Sohyun Park, 3p from South Korea and Wang Yao, 6p from China.

Special thanks to James Sedgwick (President of the Canadian Go Association) and Joanna Liu for their hospitality.
