I’ve just come back home after spending a weekend in Dublin. Jordi suggested me to go there to enjoy some games with the Irish, and take place in the Irish Go Open, and eventually I went and had a nice time playing. I was really lucky on the board, getting a full score (5 wins in 5 rounds) in the main tournament. So now I’m a 4 kyu (at least). Moreover the rapid tournament, held on Friday night, was amazing, stressful but really enjoyable… in one round I finished the game with only 2 seconds of remaining time!!
Also one interesting thing I discovered in Dublin how pleasant the Irish are. Most of them love to speak, even with unknown people, showing interest on you. I’d like to see this kind of behaviour in other places, where if you speak with a stranger, he/she thinks you are asking for money or something.
