last results of 2002
Heat 4/4 of the Dutch GRC 2002
Ad Rovers is for the moment the strongest
Dutch GIPF-player - and if not, he for sure
is the strongest EGO-member. He has won
more than half of the EGO-leagues, but when
he had to face the Belgiam top-players,
he always came just a bit short. This time
he scored a strike! 5 wins out of 5 games.
There were only 8 participants, but that
does not mean that he got the victory for
free. Kurt Vandenbranden and Patrick Van
de Perre were present - as most will know:
two of the strongest Belgian Gipfers - and
Ad floorded them both.
Go to the GIPF results
to get all the details.
Final standings GRC 2002
The competition was not as fears as the
previous years. Not even half as much players
as in 2001, and the reason for that was
(probably) that all 4 heats of this year's
edition took place at the same location
in the Netherlands. For the moment there
are still more people playing GIPF in Belgium
than in Holland and for the Belgians it
appeared not evident to go 4 times in one
year to Utrecht. So, for the GIPF Regularity
Contest 2003 we will go back to last year's
formula: 4 different spots, 2 in Belgium
and 2 the Netherlands. Anyway, this year
Patrick Van de Perre was far beyond
doubt the strongest player. He won 18 out
of 20 games played. So, no matter which
formula we'll use in 2003, he'll be the
man to beat!
DVONN Online tournament
Torben has won the "ALIVE"
tournament on Brettspielwelt
(BSW) with 7 straight wins and, by doing
so, he became the first "Hawk".
A Hawk can become a "Tiger", and
a Tiger can duel to become the ultimate
thing: a "Dragon". But there can
only be *one* Dragon, so whoever becomes
Dragon, he or she'll have to defend the
title again and again and again...
Go to the DVONN-Guild on BWS, to its results
section for more details.
Congratulations to all!
