The Birmingham Go tournament commenced in the morning of 20th April from 10.15 to the 18 30 at Newman House Catholic Chaplaincy of University of Birmingham. (more information can be seen here: http://www.brumgo.co.uk)

Andrew was taking taking the role of tournament organiser while other notable Birmingham players were taking their chance to defend their district: Fassal, Joe, Eddie and so on.

Other notable players are: KaoXiang from Brunei, Andrew Simon, Andrew Kay and Toby Manning.

Unfortunately, I could not stay the whole day because I have a “big and serious” submission for university.

Just recently, someone has finally English subbed one of the most anticipating Go manga at http://mangafox.me/manga/hoshizora_no_karasu/v01/c001/1.html and it is a shoujou manga! you know what to expect!

I (Xinwen) had personally read through the first chapter, and it is better than i expected! It is not like Hikaru no Go with those unrealistic spirit, instead, the protagonist whose name is Waka-chan got her passion in the game from her grandfather long time ago…. anyway you should read about it!

Don’t forget to join  http://facebook.com/groups/BruneiGo to show your support!

Thank you !
