breakfast wins the Baduk Cup of Consul General of Korea!

The 3rd annual Baduk Cup of Consul General of Korea took place a couple of days ago in Saint-Petersburg (Russia), on October 8-9th, and it was attended by around 100 participants, including very strong players such as Oleg Mezhov 6d (Diplomat on KGS), Dmitry Surin, Alexey Lazarev (who was the Russian Champion many times) and our very own Alexandre Dinerchtein (breakfast).

The most important games were relayed on KGS by KRconsul1, with live videostream. The second day was by far the most exciting one: Alexandre Dinerchtein faced Alexey Lazarev in the 4th round, and the result of that game proved decisive in the outcome of the tournament. The game was quite complicated, but exciting to watch because of the unusual start: "two" Chinese Openings, with a sort of Mirror-Go influence (http://files.gokgs.com/games/2011/10/9/KRconsul1.sgf). Black (Alexandre) eventually won that match.

The game that you can see here was played in the fifth round. Dmitry Surin was probably having a bad day, because this time he had no chance against Alexandre! You can see that Black was completely destroyed...

B27 (E3) was severely punished (D3 was such a powerful move!). White could fight actively because he was thick around. W56 (G7) was also really painful for Black. After W78 (C12), the game was about over...

It is always fun to see a European 6-dan being crushed :).

In the final round, Alexandre won again (against Igor Popov 5-dan), so he finished in first place. [Congratulations for the great tournament performance!] As far as I know, the prize fund exceeded $1200. (Alexei Lazarev placed second, and Alex Vashurov, 5-dan, third.)

It was an exciting tournament for us!

Attachment at E3 is the losing move. Not my own idea to cut off that stone. It was the famous Hane Naoki vs Yamashita game. Hane Naoki had nice thickness. Yamashita attached at E3. Hane started the fight by separating this stone and won the game. Commentator said that E3 is very risky in such cases. Sometimes it's very useful to study pro games :)

Mane-Go against Lazarev was hard to win - it was the most difficult game I had
