Two warnings: 1) It's a 1.7MB file - even larger than it was last year; 2) The pages are in printable order - print the first 16 pages as 8 double spreads, then turn your pages over and print the next 8 spreads.

Took place on Sunday 7th March 1999. Once again we were generously sponsored by Hitachi. We had 95 entrants, which is probably a record number. Hopefully we will see you all back next year. The main competition was won by our very own Seong-June Kim (6 dan). A Brakenhale team won the team competition. You might want to inspect the full results. There are also some silly estimated grades.

The 22nd Trigantius Tournament

This took place on Sunday 1st March 1998 and was won jointly by the defending champion Matthew Cocke (5 dan) and Des Cann (4 dan, Leamington Spa). Full results are available here, but perhaps it is best to hear what happened from the tournament directors point of view, from his account of the day appearing in the tournament booklet.

Another important part of the day in the Beginners' Competition. This is open to anyone with a grade up to 20 kyu and to people without a grade. As ever it was run by Paul Smith. His account of what happened is here.

One feature of Geoff Kaniuk's godraw program is that it will calculate estimated grades based on peoples' performances. Obviously, with a 3 round tournament this has absolutely no statistical significance - but it is quite fun so here they are.

The 21st Trigantius Tournament

The 21st Trigantius took place on Sunday 2nd March 1997 and was won by Matthew Cocke (5 dan).
