DomDipCup IV, Dutch step of the Grand Prix

18 players (1 Belgium, 11 Dutch, 1 French, 5 German) were there for the return of the DomDipCup. 7 boards were played during two days. Stefan Unger won the tournament followed by Bjorn Oberscheven and Thijs Feenstra.
Congratulations to the organizing team : Ron Huising, Ronald Lockers, Robert Camphuysen, Antoine de Schipper and Frank Oosterom.
Results of the tournament
Website of the event
Emmanuel du Pontavice is still in the first place of the Grand Prix, followed by Gwen Maggi and Rene Van Rooijen. Everything can change, because a lot of players who played only one step won this step (Christophe Borgeat, Yann Clouet, Alex Lebedev, Juho Malin and Stefan Unger).
In the team competition, La vie est injuste ! (Gwen Maggi, Emmanuel du Pontavice, Frédéric Coste) remains in the first place followed by Tri-Nations (Yann Clouet, Alex Lebedev, André Ilievics). But Tri-Nations will win a lot of points when each of their players will play a second step.
Grand Prix 2007
Stefan Unger takes the first place of the Vier-Chancen, because of his victory in Utrecht. André Ilievics takes the second place followed by Rene Van Rooijen.
Uiesce beatha (André Ilievics, Rene Van Rooijen) remains the leader of the team competition followed now by Die Unbesieglosen (Stefan Unger, Julian Ziesing).

Manorcon XXV : the next step of the Grand Prix

This year, Manorcon will be probably the only tournament in the United Kingdom, but it's always a great event! All the English players are waiting for YOU, so don't miss this tournament.
Don't forget that the Manorcon is one of the oldest tournaments around the World (first tournament in 1982)! Another reason not to miss it.
