Welile returns after good result in KPMC

Welile Gogotshe returned safely to South Africa today from the Korean Prime Minister’s Cup. He entered the tournament at 1D, and won three games out of seven, a creditable result in a tournament where 24 of the 68 players were above 5D.

The fact that his performance put him in the middle of the pack of 1D and 2D entrants shows that our ranks in South Africa are generally in line with amateur ranks overseas.

    His losses were against a 6D, two 2D players and a 1D, and his wins were against two 1D players and 2k. Overall very close to expected form.

    Thanks for the update, Dave (and for the results, Chris). Here’s a link to a picture of Welile playing at the KPMC (not sure of the opponent – those who know flags can hopefully help me out).

    Welile, I hope you had a great experience, and you can share what you’ve learnt with us South African players now that you’re back!

    That’s the Russian flag, so his opponent there would have been 11 times Russian Champion Alexei Lazarev 6D
