The opening ceremony started at 10 00 with Mah Zhe Fan (Chief Judge) explained and demonstrated clearly the rules of Ing Goe and penalties. The 1st round started at 10 30, then the 2nd round was supposedly started at 13 30 but delayed until 14 00 due to the long usage of time (Special rule: 2 Komi for buying additional 20 minutes).

Overall, the perfomances were way better presented than previous year.

This game shown was played by [White team] Haidar Mu’ien (1-kyu) x Tan Chiaw Yee (7-kyu) versus [Black team] Ang Ho Soon (7-kyu) x Ramizah (12-kyu) in the morning.

Ho Soon played at “1”, followed by “3” which is a mistake; the reason is simply that move being slow and ended up gote (后手). At the Chuban (中盤) phase as such, a highly recommended move would be White securing the territory at “A” or later at “8”.

After ended up Gote, Black sente in resulting the last winning move (胜负手) at “8”. Despite white ending up losing but this game had been excellently done by both team.

The 2nd Round was scheduled to start at 13 30 but as for that the participants had spent too much time during the first round and thus, the committee members had decided to postponed to 14 00.

Xinwen was taking the role as a recorder in this tournament, and lucky enough to record this blood puking game played by [Black team] Victor Wong Chun Kang (7-kyu) x Sarinah (12-kyu) versus [White team] Ang Ho Soon x Ramizah.

During the yose phase, the goddess of fortune had happened to hit Victor’s team giving them a chance to turn the table. They were all having great tension thinking hard to make group B killed or making them to stay alive by killing group C. Black  happened to miss the chance of cutting at 1 tesuji move, despite so, however group “A” lived in the end! which made them won 3 points in the end!

Sitting on the same table, Xinwen had happened to record [Black team] Victor’s against [White team] Chan Chung  Sun (7-kyu) x Zidah (10-kyu).

Sadly, after Chung Sun hit the stone (marked circle), Black could have survive this life and death by playing “1” and having the chance of of another eye at “3” or escaped at “2”.
