Dear players,

 

This thread is meant for informative purposes. Live tournament organisers (and participants) are invited to promote their live tournaments using this thread. Afterwards, results, pictures, press articles etc may be shared here too.

 

Let's make this a nice thread which also serves as an overview of live activity for 2019

 

The purpose of this thread is not to have (lengthy) discussions about all kind of topics. The live WC 2019 thread will be a separate one.

Topbezetting Van Geffen Druk MASTERS of STRATEGO

Op zondag 13 januari 2019 zal er een uniek evenement plaatsvinden in café-zaal ’t Hooghuys, Kapelstraat 48 in Eerde. Op die dag zal namelijk de 10e editie van de Van Geffen Druk MASTERS of STRATEGO worden gespeeld, een invitatietoernooi waaraan alleen de beste 32 spelers van de Stratego-ranking aan mogen deelnemen.

The Masters! Het prestigieuze toernooi waar alleen de beste Stratego-spelers van de wereld aan mogen deelnemen! Voor het eerst werd deze Stratego-klassieker in 1996 gespeeld. Nederlander Peter van Bodegom wist de eerste editie te winnen. Ook de tweede editie, een jaar later, won hij. Op de erelijst prijken verder de namen van Nederlanders Tijs van Dijk, Andre Pols, Wouter Hoge, Wim Snelleman, Wim Sikteoeboen (tweemaal winnaar) en Pim Niemeijer die twee jaar geleden won.

Lukt het dit jaar voor het eerst een speler buiten Nederland om die trofee te winnen? In de Top-32 staan naast zeventien Nederlanders, zes Duitsers, zeven Grieken en twee Engelsen. In elk geval zal de regerend wereldkampioen Stratego, de Griek John Vandoros (3e op de Stratego-ranking) achter het bord plaatsnemen om een gooi te doen naar die eerste plaats. Maar ook de nummer 1 van de wereld, de Rotterdammer Pm Niemeijer, heeft wederom zijn zinnen gezet op deze titel. Dat geldt ook voor thuisspeler Vince van Geffen, opgeklommen tot de 2e plaats op de ranking. Er hebben op dit moment al zeven top-10 spelers toegezegd deel te nemen, er mag gerust gesproken worden van een topbezetting!

Vanaf 10:45 uur zal er gespeeld worden en na zes spannende rondes zal rond de klok van 18:00 uur de winnaar van dit prestigieuze toernooi bekend zijn. Wethouder Menno Roozendaal van gemeente Meierijstad zal om 10:40 uur de openingszet verrichtten.

Op deze zondag zijn belangstellenden van harte welkom (de toegang is gratis) om de grootmeesters in Stratego aan het werk te zien. 

Tijdens deze dag zijn er ook Stratego-workshops waar men tekst en uitleg krijgt over deze boeiende denksport en is er gelegenheid om zelf een partij Stratego te spelen.

Van Geffen druk: MASTERS OF STRATEGO 2019

 

Today we played the Van Geffen druk: MASTERS OF STRATEGO 2019. The top 32 of the kleier.net rating were invited to participate.
 
Throughout the tournament, many visitors took a look at the game of Stratego. Some press was present and an alderman of the municipality of Meierijstad was ready to open the tournament by making the first move between Anjo Travaille and Peter Versleysdonk. 
 
The participants were treated a nice lunch consisting of tomato soup and Dutch style sandwiches.
 
At the end of the tournament, organiser Johnny van Geffen, on behalf of SBN (StrategoBond Nederland - Dutch Stratego Association) was given a medal for his efforts made to organise the tournament. Quick fact: Johnny van Geffen was the only player with a 100% score this day, as he beat the earlier mentioned alderman in a showmatch. 
 
Big thanks to Johnny van Geffen for organising and sponsoring the event.
 
You can read Johnny's story about the tournament here

PK Utrecht, 2019

The venue was well received by the players who came here first time. The tournament was held in the National Mind Sports Center, where the Bridge Association has their offices and a number of tournament halls that can be connected together to make bigger tournaments scalable.

 

The entry fee was higher than usual, but this was to include the very nice Dutch style  luch buffet with soup and bread and many toppings. I wish I took a picture of that too.

Top 3 of the tournament, number 1 and number 2 player had the same amount of points.

 

The whole event was sponsored by Bovenkamers, a consultancy firm, who was thanked very much by the Dutch Stratego Association for this during the opening and closure speech.

 

The full results and cross table.
