Francis and Tim were both pleased to win beer
The Durham Go Tournament on the 4th and 5th June started a busy month of events. Held at Durham School, just west of the city centre, it was attended by 49 people. Those who arrived early could play Go in the Victoria Hotel on the Friday night and on the Saturday night 36 of the players made a local Chinese buffet owner very happy.
The tournament ended with a tie for first place, between Francis Roads (4 dan Wanstead) and Tim Hunt (3 dan Milton Keynes), each on five wins. Also on five wins was Patrick Ridley (22 kyu Chester).
