Kyu players' Tournament and Teaching day 2014

The second South London kyu players' teaching day and tournament was held on Saturday the 6th of December at the Croydon Quaker Meeting House. Nineteen students were taught by four teachers - Andrew Kay, Alex Rix, Tim Hunt, and Alison Bexfield - in the morning. In the afternoon there was a three round tournament, with a time limit of forty minutes per player.

In the teachers' tournament the teachers all played each other, in a round-robin tournament with all games even. In the students' tournament all games were played with handicaps equal to grade difference where appropriate.

Andrew Kay won the teachers' tournament with three wins, and got a prize of a bag of delicious gingerbread men from the organiser's excellent local cake shop.

In the student tournament, prizes of useful Go books went to Chris Volk (1k) and Colin Maclennan (9k) for winning three games, and to Ben Clark (14k), Charlotte Bexfield (11k) and Richard Wheeldon (4k) for winning two. Robin Patterson (18k) got the fighting spirit prize for losing all his games at his first tournament.
