The third London kyu players' teaching day and tournament was held on Saturday the 28th of November at the West London Go Club's excellent new venue at the Young Chelsea Bridge Club. The West London club also generously donated some of the prizes.
Sixteen students were taught by four teachers - Nick Krempel, 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. Nick couldn't stay for the tournament in the afternoon so the strongest student, Bruce Tinton, was declared to be an honorary teacher. In the teachers' tournament all played all, 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.
Alison Bexfield won the teachers' tournament.
In the student tournament, prizes of useful Go books went to Charlotte Bexfield (10k) and Paolo Capriotti (5k) for winning three games, and to David Siegwart, Ben Murphy, Francesco Chiarini, and Ryan Nguyen who were the weakest - and hence best performing for their grade - players on two wins.
