2012 British Shogi Championship Results

The 2012 British Open Shogi Championships was held in Broadstairs over the weekend of November 24th/25th. The title was won by Steven Cain after a playoff with Daisuke Matsuura.

We had six players in all, so we started with a five round all-play-all tournament. This finished with Steven Cain and Daisuke Matsuura both on 4 out of 5. Steven lost to Daisuke in round three while Daisuke lost to Edward Ishiyama in round four. The title was decided by a playoff game at the same time limit as the main tournament (30 minutes plus 40 seconds a move thereafter). This game was won by Steven.
