  • From Tetsuya Nakajima:

        I am very glad to announce that I won the meijin title match again. The 19th meijin title match was held on 5th April. The previous meijin is me as you know :-), and the challenger is Masaki Takizawa. We played 4 games, and use number of discs to tie-break.

  • From Bintsa Andriani:

         On 25 April we organised a national championship for the french clubs; six teams composed of four players. Here are the final results;

    1. LYON       7,5/10 (Sarkissian, Piau, Collay F. et S.)
    2. PARIS_2    7      (Caspard, Robin, Roch, Tesinsky)
    3. STRASBOURG 6      (Massire, Lanuit, Scherno, Bourrachot)
    4. PARIS_1    4      (Tastet/Juhem, Andriani, Abe, Ovion)
       RENNES     4      (Poirier, Stevens, Garel, Lang)
    6. GRENOBLE   1,5    (Kashiwabara, Souchet, Lacroix, Michel)

        This was a big success, and it will be reconducted next year. Didier Piau has stopped to play since a long time, and he has decided to compete again. He was one of the best french players in the years 1985-1990.
