There were three rounds played on the small 9×9 boards and the winner was Romans Seselovskis who won all of his games and Judith Knott won the women’s prize (both in picture). They both received gift vouchers provided by Student Services and other prizes were some small Go sets and puzzle books. Romans also won the ‘Go Puzzles’ quiz. All the entrants picked up fridge magnets and/or some chocolates.
Go originally came from China and is similar to Western chess as a strategy game, but it offers more scope for intuitive play. Anyone who is interested to learn can do so in the Students’ Lounge at lunchtimes 12.30 ~ 1.30 or most Mondays from 4.30 ~ 6.00 pm.
