16th Irish Open 2005

The Irish Open Go Championship took place in the usual venue of the Teachers’ Club, Parnell Square, on March 5th and 6th.

The competition was won by Yung Chen, a Chinese student living in Dublin. Chen entered at 1k, which placed him below the bar, but managed to win all his games, finishing on 4 McMahon points, a clear point ahead of D.K Kim (2d).

The general concensus after the tournament was that Chen is most definitely not a 1 kyu, and is probably more like 2 dan.

Other notable results were Ian Davis finishing in 7th place, with 5 wins from 5, having beaten two dan players on the way, and Michael Thai also finishing on 5/5.
