"Octopus" again the strongest

For the record: this MSO Championship was the very first GIPF-tournament with TAMSK-potentials and I think all the participants agreed that it was a very exciting experience. One thing is sure: playing with TAMSK-potentials makes GIPF an even more violent an unpredictable game. When being 2, 3 even 4 pieces ahead, you just never know whether that will be sufficient or not.
Yoshi started with a loss but then got in overdrive again. He scored 4 points in a row and -- just like the day before -- snatched the title from Werner Dupont.
