Osamu Omodera

Eight players registered for the GIPF MSO Championship in Tokyo. Some of the strong players of Osaka (the gold, silver and bronze medal winners of the Japanese Championship, 2000) were running the tournament, thus could not participate. Osamu Omodera became the winner with 7 straight wins. He did get a well deserved gold medal AND a ticket to London, to participate at the 2nd GIPF WC.
