Rank changes

We were pleased to welcome a new 2-kyu to the rating system at the Stellenbosch Open, Marco Dellermann. Marco is a 16-year-old German who has moved to South Africa, and lives in Cape Town. He plays on KGS as “Urlaub”.

Steve Kroon was promoted to 3-kyu after managing an upset win against Marco in the second round, while Andries Kruger is, I believe, the first person to end a game on 999 index, where he finished the tournament just short of a promotion.

Other upsets in the tournament were Andre Connell defeating Konrad Scheffler, and Reinhardt Messerschmidt beating Marco in the first round, and Andrew Davies beating Michael Wang in the third round in the match to decide the tournament winner.
