The winner of the Intermediate section of the 2014 Irish Correspondence Championship has been decided tonight. James Aitken, who plays at Belfast Go Club, came out on top. He scored 8 wins out of 9, losing only to Julia Bohle, who seemed to grow in strength as the championship progressed. In second place was Kevin Doherty, from Galway. Not all games have been finished in the competition yet, but the top places are no longer in doubt.
In other news, the Belfast Go Club are sitting on top of the BGA’s online league. Their team, comprising Karl Irwin, James Hutchinson, and Tiberiu Gociu has shown keen spirit to get as many games played as possible. (Not always an easy task!) Their current scoreline of 12-2 seems to place them in an commanding position.
