Black won 17 games, White won 17, and there were 3 jigoes.
Six players registered. We welcomed a player new to these events, 'Goissa', the creation of Artur Roshchin.
In round 1, Orego12 did not move in its game with Goissa, disconnected, and returned later, in time to play in round 4. Also in round 1, MCark played part of its game against AyaMC, and then disconnected. MCark did not return.
|orego12 vs AyaMC|
In round 5, AyaMC played the sequence shown to the right against Orego12. This is, I believe, the tesuji given in English-language tesuji books with a name like "tickling the ferret's belly". It killed the white group, and AyaMC won the game.
|HiraBot vs AyaMC|
In the final round, if AyaMC had won its game with HiraBot, it would have won the tournament. It played moves 33-37 as shown to the left. 33 and 35 look like a sensible reduction of White's territory. But instead of responding to 36 by connecting 33 and 35 to its live group (which I think leads to a win; but I may well be mistaken), it played 37. 37 is sente, but if White answers by connecting the bamboo join, it makes Black's position in the top left weaker while doing nothing to weaken White. This game ended in jigo, allowing Fuego9 to catch up with AyaMC on wins and win the tournament on the SOS tiebreak.
