København 1995

Thomas Juergensen

Copenhagen Open was this year for the first time held in the Valby Medborgerhus near Valby stadion. Disappointingly the demise of this tournament seems to continue, as only 24 participants showed up.

The favourite for winning this tournament was Christopher Gerlach, 5 dan from Germany, who took 3rd place at the European Go Congress in Tuchola. Apart from him Radek Nechanicky, 5 dan from Czechia, also seemed to have a chance to take 1st place. The local favourites were Frank Hansen, Kasper Hornbech (both 5 dan), Ulrik Bro-Joergensen and Jannik Rasmussen (both 4 dan).

After crushing Hornbech and winning against Bro-Joergensen and Desmond Cann (4 dan from GB), Gerlach met Nechanicky in the clash of favourites (Nechanicky being the only unbeaten player apart from Gerlach).

In this game as well Gerlach took the vitory and by finishing off Jannik Rasmussen in the last round he won the tournament undefeated. The last game actually turned out to be crucial, as Rasmussen would have won the tournament by 1 SODOS point, had he won the last game.

Nechanicky, though losing in his last-round match to Frank Hansen, became second (3 SOS points ahead of Rasmussen).

One of the biggest upsets of this tournament happened in the 3rd round, when Kasper Hornbeck, 5 dan, (who had a rather bad tournament) lost to Thomas Juergensen, 1 dan.

The only player with four points was Juergen Schroeder from Germany, who thereby was the only one to win a prize apart from the top three.

Kind regards, Thomas Juergensen
