[quoted from http://aghs.cc/tournaments/bruneicup/brunei.html]

In 2004, Chin Sin Voon of Brunei and Christopher Vu from the United States met at the inaugural Iwamoto Amateur Online Championships, held by the Chilean Go Association. Competing in the same division, they faced each other in the eight and final round to determine who would win a medal and who would have to wait another year.. The end result? A friendship that would spur their respective national go clubs to join forces.

Five years later, to celebrate their friendship, the American Go Honor Society and the Burnei I-Go Society established the “Brunei Friendship Cup” in remembrance of all that the two founders went through to establish their respective clubs.

The United States squeaked out a narrow victory in the 1st edition.
Now Southeast Asia wants REVENGE. CHARGE!!!!
