European Go Congres 2012 day 1
The tournament takes place in the City Hall of Bonn-Bad Godesberg, a small but very nice suburb, located in the center and surrounded by a very nice park.
Exactly on time the first round of the European Team Tournament 2012, sponsored by Pandanet, started on Saterday Juli 21 10.30 Berlin time.
Mrs Taki (photo left) of Pandanet introduced some exciting plans for the future.
The German organisation runs like a Mercedes engine and is very well prepared.
So no troubles yet?
Sadly to say there is/was something big......Artem Kachanovsky 7d did not get a visum.....
Why? German burocratie.....
So, great so see that Germans are not perfect^^.
How was the problem of the European Vice-Champion not being there solved? With great sportmanship of the teamleaders of Russia, Czech Republic and France, when they decided that Artem/bpard 1 Ukraine could play the first board on IGS/Pandanet
The first round gave us 2 draws as France vs Russia and Czech Republic vs Ukraine ended both in 2-2.
Round 2 gave more firework as the Ukraine crushed France by 4-0 and Russia again could not win, this time the Czech talents held up (2-2).
At 18.00 hours the official opening took place.
