The 13th World Students GO OZA Championship

The 13th World Students GO OZA Championship took place on the 24th and 25th of February 2015 in Tokyo, Japan.



The whole event lasted a few days longer, because it included also the opening ceremony on the day before and a sightseeing trip on the day after the tournament. The organizers of the tournament were: 
- The All-Japan Students GO Association
- NIHON KEIZAI SHIMBUN INC.
- PANDANET INC.
in cooperation with The Nihon Ki-in and The International Go Federation.

Altogether 16 students from all over the world took part at the event after initially qualifying for it. Qualifying tournaments were organized beforehand for different regions.
Europe gets 3 places every year for these finals in Tokyo, 2 for male players and one for a female player.

The tournament takes place usually at the end of February and the organizers cover all the expenses for the tournament participants. Even though Bohdan Zhurakovskyi from Ukraine and Fredrik Blomback from Sweden were the male players to officially qualify after the online qualification tournament, they announced that they couldn’t come and Europe was represented by Johannes Obenaus from Germany, Petr Kouba from the Czech Republic and me, Laura Avram from Romania.



It was already my 3rd time to take part in this tournament and it has been a great pleasure every time to be able to attend the event.

The general level of the players was pretty high, maybe even higher than during the last years. Su Guangyue from China became the champion, Park Jong Wook from Korea finished 2nd and Yeh Kang-Ting from Chinese Taipei finished 3rd.
The deciding game was the one between Su Guangyue and Park Jong Wook, but sadly it was not really possible to see from their game who was the strongest one: Park Jong Wook lost quite early in the game by time, because he didn’t know that after the 1 hour main time there was only one 30 sec byoyomi period.

The results of the European team were the following: Johannes 8th place, Petr 14th place and I finished the last one, but to me it feels like the big achievement was to actually get to play in the tournament and that the final result mattered less :-).

For more information about the tournament and for the official results and games you can check the official page of the tournament: http://igooza.nikkei.co.jp/students/13th/index-we.htm#about .

Announcement of the International Iwamoto Awards 2015

http://eurogotv.com/images/Iwamoto-1.png
The European Go Centre is happy to announce the World Wide Iwamoto Awards. In succession to the European editions in 2001, 2003, 2007 and 2012, the Iwamoto Awards now go global.
Thanks to internet and social media, the world has become smaller, so we think it is time to invite people on a global scale to submit Go promotion projects. These projects are collected in our public database. With this information everybody who is involved in the promotion of Go can find new ideas and inspiration for their own projects. You can have a look at our website to see the submissions of previous editions of the European Iwamoto Awards.

The European Iwamoto Awards were much appreciated by the contributors, the EGF and the Nihon Ki-in. Therefore we want to extend the project and improve some features. You can find all details and the criteria for submitting projects on our website here.http://eurogotv.com/images/iwamoto-st.png
