On Sunday 6th May, six games were played on OGS between players of Tony's Go Club and the Senthé Go Club in Montreal, Canada. The players who represented Tony's Go Club are Kevin Liu, Yang Chao, Shuo Chen Yang, Patrick Zhou, Yao Meng and Tony Li. In response, the Canadian team also had several strong participants, namely: Qi You Wu, strong amateur 9D on Tygem who has played for Senthé as first board on multiple occasions; Manuel Velasco, strong OGS 6 dan who was a former insei in the Korean Baduk Association; James Sedgwick, the president of the Canadian Go Association. 

The match was broadcasted on popular gaming livestream website twitch.tv. Live commentaries are offered by YoonYoung Kim, a 4 dan professional currently coaching the Senthé Go Club. You can find several videos of the event here, here and here.

As of 15th February 2018 A member of the University of Canterbury Go Club has achieved the no 1 position on the OGS international go server 19 x 19 site ladder !

This is a somewhat remarkable achievement and Alan never expected it and was only dreaming of a top ten position.

His  username on OGS is sawcutgorge as you will see if you click through.  https://online-go.com/ladders. Alan encourages other NZ players to get involved in the ladder.

Well done!
