5th Pro qualification 2019 - Quarter- and Semi-finals

We have now entered the stage of single KO with only eight players left.

For the results look here.

This morning, because of the weekend tournament, play in the Pro Qualification has been moved to another room.
Even after some challenges with the internet, we still managed to start without any delay.

Clash of Mascottes


At this stage of the competition the tension is building, and that was noticeable even before the games started.
There was now little small talk, and instead more concentration and staring faces in the room, before the games started.
The different styles of playing a stone on the board became more extreme now, either loud clicks on the boards or no sound at all...
Dominik plays his move with a loud clash!
Stanislaw a silent placement also works!


Yawning players looking for more fresh air and even muscle contractions are seen.
Jackets on and than off again as the games progress, nervously walking around looking at the other boards.
Tanguy staring or praying?
Dominik looking locally where to play
Viacheslav Kaymin, where to play now?


Faces being rubbed by hands, moaning, sniffing and rubbing or slapping the arms or legs...
Hands in bowls playing with stones, stones taken out trown on the table.
One can feel the importance and gravity of the games being played here now.

In the game I was the scribe, Cornel gradually gave away the game against Dominik who played a slow and steady game. Cornel made a short comeback after playing some strong moves. Dominik although looking a bit nervous in my opinion kept on playing his steady moves and the 10 points difference in his advantage never really looked to be danger.

In the other games no big upsets were seen, so we come to the following semifinals:

Dominik Boviz - Tanguy Le Calvé
Lukáš Podpera - Stanislaw Frejlak

And with this 3 of my 4 predicted players entered the semifinals.

The Final will be played between:

Tanguy Le Calvé - Lukáš Podpera
