Its the second times for Brunei Darussalam Go Association to participate in this world championship sending Ho Soon (3-kyu) and the Association’s president, Chai Hui (1-dan) as team leader.
Previously (here), Ho Soon had brought proud to the Association in the 2012 Korea Prime Minister Baduk Championship considering its his debut in World Championship – but can he perform better and achieve expectation!?

Have everyone heard of the game of Go song by Chris Linn back in the 80s? Listen to it now then! Never knew there was actually a song about Go written by a singer
Today [6th of June] marks the 185th birthday of Honinbo Shusaku (本因坊秀策). The image is shown at the google search itself other than brunei’s google search for whatever lousy reason (which they have never celebrated anything).
Proud to be part of the big world of Go’s family. Enjoy and remember to play Shusaku Fuseki to commemorate the legendary player!
