The picture appeared on the SinChew Daily News Brunei of course under the heading of the Chinese Cultural Day. It was very fortunate the Association could get featured on a picture itself even though the cover and the writings did not mention anything about Brunei Darussalam Go Association.
The Chinese Cultural Day will be held on the 30th October, 2013 shortly from afternoon 2pm at IHS of University Brunei Darussalam and of course Xinwen on behalf of Brunei Darussalam Go Association with his fellow members will be there!
Xinwen will be the presenter for the Weiqi Session!
ZheFan, as one of the best players of Brunei Darussalam had stepped into the top-class Korea Prime Minister Baduk Championship representing the nation this year! The tournament was commencing from the 10th to the 15th October, 2013.
The tournament is hosted in Gumi, North Gyeongsang this year; one of the best thing about this particular event is they host their competition at different places every year!
Nevertheless, the players had to compete 6 games in two days. ZheFan had his best shot against all his opponents and scored 2 wins (54th out of 62nd).
