A strike for Le Maître

What counts for the Germans in DVONN, also counts for the Belgians in GIPF. For the time being they still have the strongest players: 3 Belgians on the first 3 spots. Patrick "Le Maître" Van de Perre won 5 games in a row, Kurt Van den Branden won 4 of his games (and lost against Patrick), and Rita Pauwels won 3 games (and lost against Patrick and Kurt). But - again! - my guess is that the Belgian hegemony will last so much longer. They already have the Dutch players on their tail, and now also a bunch of German and French players is catching up. To be continued!
