Phénix Go Club
Local player and co-organiser Jan Ramon (4D) has won the 19th edition of the Leuven Go Tournament. He was just a few SOSOS points ahead of François Gonze (Louvain-La-Neuve,2D) who defeated in the last round T.Mark Hall (UK,4D). Hall finished on rang 3. There was also a good result for Kwinten Missiaen (5/5), and Marie Jemine, Vincent Lochen, Kenny Debacq, Maarten Fabré and Laure Lambaerts (4/5).
The season 2008 of interclubs is over. The clubs of Antwerp, Le Chaff, Ghent, Leuven, Namur and Le pantin fought for the title, which was won by the Namur Go club. Congratulations!
53 interclub games were played. The interclubs proved to be still very popular; many players took part in three rounds or more. Some players deserve a special mention : Kenny Debacq, Kris Van Bael and Kris Boyen played in all rounds.
Thanks to all captains and club members for their commitment. Hope to see all of you for the season 2009!

Thanks a lot to our sponsors (Pandanet, EGF and Marchand) and to all the players that made this tournament a great success.
Dear Go friends,
this week the fourth round of interclub was played (except for the games between Pantin and Leuven, as Pantin was not able to send a team to Leuven and lost by forfait).
This leads to exciting new results, as we have a new top:
With one more round to play, nothing is certain yet ...
