01-02 Aprile 2017

Atene - Atene

Takuji Kashiwabara


The format of this EGP tournament is 9 rounds, semifinals and final.

Three Frenchmen travelled to Athens for the second stage of the 2017 EGP: Takuji Kashiwabara (3rd place in Prague), Marc Tastet (5th place in Prague) and Stéphane Nicolet. No other foreigners present at this tournament. Their Greek opponents are: Lydia Papadaki, Andreas Litsas, Georgios Mitsis, Christina Mitsi, Irene Melanouri, Christos Katsionis and Nikolaos Karamanos.

A lucky draw for Takuji Kashiwabara in round 2 against Andreas Litsas. Andreas missed the winning move 58 a3 and played the drawing move 58 a2. He still had 9 minutes on the clock, but must have miscounted the endresult. Not so much luck for Takuji in round 3, that was a 41-23 win for Stéphane Nicolet. Stéphane won all his games on the first day. Marc Tastet won 6 games and played a draw against Takuji in round 6. A nice third place for Christina Mitsi. Fourth place for Takuji who won 2 games and played 4 draws! The final for the best beginner finished in a win for Lydia Papadaki who won 37-27 against Christos Katsionis.
