Tuesday night Go

Played my first game against konrad (1 dan) since i've become a 5kyu and won by 15.5, i played a solid game not taking chance and he just could'nt catch up the handicap. Makes me feel solid at the 5kyu level :)

This post starts 2 weeks ago when I was on a -50 index but feeling ok as an 6kyu, i then played Llyod 2kyu and after winning the close match i moved up to 200 index. Then i played steve 3k in my Western Cape Closed 2nd round game and beat him on scratch, this gave me a huge boost in index and i became a 5kyu YAY!, then not knowing this i played Lloyd 2kyu and Bernard 2kyu both as if i was a 6kyu and winning both games i am now a 5kyu with an 152 index.

So last night i got to the Stellenbosch club with Jaco and had some sushi at the local noodle bar, after a relaxing meal Steve asked me if we can play our Western Cape Closed 2nd Round game, Steve is a 3k and I am a 6k kyu, so even if I have beaten him before I was very nervous (All games in WC Closed are even games).
After a eventfull game I won by 9.5 after his komi .... Yippee!!! but now I have to play my nemesis and all time rival in go - Jaco , this will be and epic game but I don't have that much hope of winning :(
