WMSG Update – 8 October 2008

Victor has won his 5th round game against the 7-dan Australian, Kevin Chen. Meanwhile Canadian Yongfei Ge beat Dmytro Bogatskyy, who beat Victor in round 3. This leaves one player undefeated (Bernd Rademacher, a German 4-dan, who upset Ge in Round 2), while Victor, Ge, Bogatskyy, and 4-dan Frenchman, Alain Kerbrat, each have 1 loss. Victor faces Ge in the next round, with the loser effectively out of the running.

As expected, Chris Visser lost his game against Fernando Aguilar. Chris’s next opponent is a 10 kyu Bulgarian, Valeriya Gencheva.

Update: Victor has beaten Yongfei Ge, so it seems the two of them are sharing the lead with Bernd Rademacher and Alain Kerbrat, a 4-dan Frenchman. (Alain beat Bernd in the sixth round).

Correction: Bernd beat Kerbrat, so he is leading the group without a loss, while Victor is placed second as the only player on 5/6.

Yet another correction: It seems some of the earlier round results in our source were wrong. Bernd Radmacher actually lost to Yongfei Ge in Round 2, so Ge was undefeated until Round 6, when he lost to Victor. So, to summarize, Victor, Yongfei and Bernd are tied for the lead on one loss each. Victor’s chances seem good with him facing 4-dan Bernd in the final Round.
