Phantom Rengo

Phantom Rengo tournament was won by Lena Gauthier and Marcus Roelz, second came Kevin Sanow and Malte Gerhold, third Oliver Wolf and Young Sam Kim. 

If you wonder how it works: There are two boards with a wall in between so that players do not see the other board. On each board one of the players of a team is playing. He sees the moves of the player sitting opposite of him, but neither the moves of his partner nor of the other opponent player. Only the referee sees both boards, and the boards are joined on the referee board. The referee announces whether the move is possible (i.e. there is no stone of either colour at the same spot), if stones get into atari (how many and which colour), if stones are caught and if a move is illegal. So it is not unusual that with one move, x own and y opponent stones are set into atari ;-)

Computer Go: Catalin wins against CrazyStone

While Catalin (5p) lost a 4 stone handicap game against CrazyStone on Wednesday, he won the revenge he got on thursday. After an epic fight CrazyStone resigned in move 233. At that point Catalin was ahead by some 10 points. On KGS, commentators Petr Baudis (Prague, currently in Bonn) and Stefan Kaitschick (Hamburg) made a perfect double. It is worth rereading the (ir) chat in the h4-game of August 02, 2012.
