Kobayashi will now face title holder Cho U in the best-of seven title match. It's Kobayashi's first attempt to become Meijin.

European Union 08-06 European Go Congress


The 49th European Go Championships were won by Alexandr Dinerstein from Russia with a score of 8 out of 10. The winner of last year, Yoon Kwang-sun from Korea, was not entered in the top-32 group so despite having the same score as the winner he ended 9th, being short of McMahon points. Other noteworthy facts: 10 Koreans and 3 Russians in the top-15. Highest ending European amateur: Ilja Shikshin from Russia (8th). Highest ending female competitor: Zhao Pei from Germany (13th). more
