REPORT FROM JAPAN RENJU FEDERATION TRIP TO TAIWAN



  Dear Renju friends.

  This time, Japan Renju Federation visited to Taiwan

for development of Renju for Asian area. I report this trip.

  When we played The 7th WC in Kyoto, we had the second

Asia committee. Then we promised this trip with Taiwanese

players, Mr. Chang Yi-Feng(La), and Mr. Meritee.



Date ; 2001.11.21-25

Member ; Kyozo Isobe 9-dan, Shinichi Ishitani 8-dan,

	     Takahiro Kudomi 6-dan, Hideki Nara 9-dan.

Details ;

  We took part in two Renju meeting at Taipei and Tainan.

*11.23(Thu) at Taipei

  The meeting place is in a tea-shop. Many young people,

about 50 men and women gathered there. Mr. Chang Yi-Feng

is arranging this meeting every week.

  This day, Mr. Lin Shieng-Min, Mr. Chung Hsien-Chi, Mr.

A-Meritee and many players had come there. And a journalist

of Japanese Tokyo-Chunichi Newspaper, Mr. Kusama had come

there to collect news. Mr. Isobe called him.

  There, we introduced Mr. Lin Shieng-Min's 5-dan diploma from

Japan Renju Federation, and gave some presents from Japan to

Taipei. And we accepted some gifts, thank you.

  Then, we played some games against many players as we can

possible. Japanese 4 men lost many games, because every

Taiwanese players are very strong. For example, I (Nara) lost two

games against Miss Yao (17 years old, pretty girl). About this,

Mr. Ando Meritee said, "All Japanese players weak against young

girl ! " I think it is true. Ahaha....



*11.24(Fri) at Tainan

  Mr. Chang Yi-Feng brought us to Tainan by his car. And some

Taipei players (Finite, Ikon, Chung, Yao, etc.....) joined us.

  Tainan is about 300 Km away from Taipei. We leave Taipei 10

o'clock half, we arrived at tainan 16 o'clock. Because highway

got choked with traffic. But Mr. Chang drove only himself, Xie xie.

  The meeting place is in a tea-shop same as Taipei. Many young

people, about 40 men and women gathered there.

  We gave some presents from Japan to Tainan. And we accepted

some gifts, Arigatou.

  Then, we played some games against many players.

  Foo, Taiwan players are very strong too.

  After meeting, we went back to taipei by Mr. Chang's driving.



*Summary

  We had very meaingful times in Taiwan. We talked with many

friends about Renju, and played many games. I hope this activity

will stand Asian Renju in good stead.

  All Taiwanese Renju friends, thank you very much !

  See you again at The 8th WC in Sweden, two years later.

ABOUT RENJU NEWSLETTER



The idea of Renju Newsletter is to spread information about events in

the world of renju, go-moku and related board games.



One event is the opening of a Renju Players Club. Another event is the

start of Renju Class Newsletter.



* Alexander Nosovsky asked me to publish information about Yahoo Renju

  Club, which I have done twice.



* Ando Meritee asked me to publish the whole content of the 1st

  renjuclass newsletter, which I did.



These last two Renju Newsletters has lead to a discussion between the

two involved, which will not be published further in Renju Newsletter.



However, you can find Alexander Nosovsky's replies to Ando Meritee in

Yahoo Renju Players Club, http://clubs.yahoo.com/clubs/renjuplayers

where I prefer the discussion is kept from now.

EDITORS GREETING

Dear subscribers of Renjuclass Newsletter,



I am happy to announce the opening of our regular Newsletter. It will

be published frequently and keep everyone updated with all the

information regarding renjuclass and also world renju events. My idea

of having a Newsletter was inspired by Tommy Maltell who created the

Renju Newsletter many years ago. It is a wonderful way of spreading

information. I hope you will all enjoy this! I also hope you will all

be cooperative and help me with infromation and articles. Thank you

so much!



----------------------------------------------------------------------



REMINDER ABOUT THE RACE "THE BEST STUDENTS 2001"



Just like in last year, after the end of the year, we will select the

Best Students of the year according to your homework results.



The conditions of selections are shown here:

"Since the homework is the most important condition that shows the

student's activity as well as skill, therefore the selection of best

students is based on homework answers.

There are lots of students who actively submit their homework almost

every week, and there are students whose homework answers are correct

almost every time.

Therefore, we have two big categories - the quantity and the quality

of the homework. Both are equally important categories. Quantity

shows the activity and dedication of the student whereas quality

shows the deepness and preciseness of their homework answer. Quantity

is measured by the number of submitted homework answers, quality is

measured by earned creditpoints. In case of equal points, the places

were determined by additional criterias."



Here you can take a look at the results of last year Best Student

race. http://my.tele2.ee/renjuclass/best2000.html



I wish everyone good luck and more spirit in order to become the

Best!! :)



Ando Meritee

RENJUCLASS TOURNAMENT



For those who have not been active recently and do not know our

recent activities, I inform that we are currenly playing The 2nd

Online Renju Class Tournament in our speacial tournament server.

There are 37 players taking part in it. The tournament began on

October 1, 2001. Each player has 20 games there. The time limit is 40

days per player. The best players of the tournament will be rewarded

with credit points.



The tournament server database stores all the games, and they are

accessible to everyone.



----------------------------------------------------------------------



NEW DOWNLOADS



The most recent update about the download area is about ANDO's BOOK.

We have uploaded the complete "Indirect 2" opening there. It has

nearly 30 pages, and it takes 17 credit points to download it all.



----------------------------------------------------------------------



COMMENTS TO NOSOVSKY'S INSULTING MESSAGE



There is one interesting message I found from yahoo message board. I

could not decide first whether to put it here or to Jokes Message

Board. But the tone of the message is serious, therefore I publish it

in General Message Board of Renjuclass.



The author of the message was Alexander Nosovsky, RIF Vice President.



His message:



"Dear Members of Club

You can download Ando Meritee 11 wins at WC with his commentaries

http://my.tele2.ee/renjuclass/my11games.zip

He is the only person in Renju who won 3 times World Championship.

Other players probably can not beat him at all because he earn his money

teaching Renju Taiwanese players, other players has their own

professions.

There is also RenjuClass where students need to analyze variants for

Meritee.

So, he play games which were analyzed whole team of players.

It is interesting to read comentary of such strong player to his games

at WC. "



People who may be do not know Mr Nosovsky very well, I can explain

that he is a person who likes to talk a lot, annoy people, manipulate

with people, and usually does not know much about the facts nor

ethics.



It is a shame that we have chosen him to be a vice persident for

Renju International Federation, since he is just creating confusion

and negative feelings in the world of renju. He is purposely making

up stories to humiliate others. This is very sad. However, I am very

optimistic, and looking forward to see more honest and polite vice

president in the future.



Alexander Nosovsky does not know if I got paid by Taiwan Renju

Association or not. But he is brave to make his conclusions. In fact,

The Association was practically dead when I arrived to Taiwan. The

association owes me over 1 year salary. I taught them for free

because of my optimism and faith to renju. We all see, Nosovsky's

attempt was to find excuses for my result in WC.



Nosovsky says I ask students analyse variants for me, so that I could

use them for my win games.

I think Nosovsky has heard something about our Homework, but he

apparently does not know the content of homework. The homework

questions have nothing to do with analyses of renju openings. I guess

he was just too busy and did not bother to download any of the

homeworks, although they are all 100% available for public download

at www.renjuclass.com. And all the answers as well. So, if someone

thinks there is something valuable for WC preparation, one can

download them for free. Well, It was his another attempt to try to

humiliate my result in WC.



I am not offended. It is because I know him well, and his behaviour

and attitude does not surprise me at all. I just want you all know

what to expect whenever you get in touch with him in the future.



He surely owes an apology to me personally and to the whole

renjuclass. He humiliated me and all of you with his message.



Ando Meritee



----------------------------------------------------------------------



SURPRISING PROJECT FOR 2002 - "WAR OF ROSES"



We are expecting another exciting activity in Renjuclass in coming

year.



We will have a role play with all our class. All 100 people will be

involved with it.

It is called "The War of Roses". Those who know the history of

England, they probably guess what this is all about (The Red Rose vs

The White Rose).

We will split the whole class into two teams, and we will create a

special server where the two teams will play the game in one board.

When it is one team's turn to move, it has 24 hours for that. During

that time, all the warriors of that team must make their vote for the

next move. The system will automatically select the most voted move

in the moment the deadline passes, and submits it to the big board.

We will create more side activities to that "War of Roses" to make it

more playful and even romantic.



Please write your comments and ideas about "War of Roses" to General

Message board of renjuclass.

The application is working as a platform for algorithms that is read

The software is far from being ready and does contain bugs.

The sourcecode is written in a very sloppy way but probably

  - RENJUCLASS INFORMATION

-------------------------------------------



RENJUCLASS INFORMATION

======================



Hello renju people of the world!



On behalf of renjuclass I have some information to give all of you.

First of all, our URL is still same as before, www.renjuclass.com.

Besides that you can also use the URL www.renju.net which is our

alternative address and leads to the same website.



Our renjuclass now has 92 students from 20 different countries all over

the world. It is the largest international renju community in the world

where people study hard about renju and make everything to become a

better player.



Our renjuclass students study regularly every week. They attend lessons,

do their weekly homework, etc.



We now have 5 Grand Masters in our class!! Their renjuclass usernames

are luwenzhe (China), ladykayak (Canada), concord2497 (Taiwan), forsaken

(China), jahre (Russia). The title has been given to them because of

their true and dedicated work and study in renjuclass. The condition of

the title was to earn 100 credit points of the renjuclass by showing

renju efforts.



THE FRESH NEWS:

Today, on October 1, the renjuclass began our second official Renju

Tournament. There are 37 people taking part in it. The games are played

in the special Game Server that has been built specially for renjuclass

website.



Everybody is welcome to watch our activity in renjuclass!! If you want

to see how the games are played in either our regular Play Games server

or Tournament server, then you can do it by going to www.renjuclass.com

website, clicking on 'Play Games' link and then you will be shown the

link 'WELCOME GUESTS!'. There you get all the necessary information that

you need for going around in our server.



One more thing: On behalf of renjuclass and 92 eager students I thank

Renju International Federation for supporting our inevitable costs such

as domain name fee (USD 15) and server host fee (USD 60)!

RIF attention and support will help us to grow even bigger and spread

renju all over the world!



See you in our class!

Webmaster note:

All chairmans and members listed in a commission, please send me an

e-mail, informing me which commission(s) you are a member of.





Concluding words from the former president of RIF

=================================================

I congratulate Peter Jonsson to be the new president of RIF. Since

the start of RIF Peter has been a member of the Central Commitee.

Actually Peter was the one to write the proposal for the statues of

RIF. So he already knows a lot about adminstration within RIF. I know

that he cares much for renju. Also the other members of Central

Committee - the old and new members - I also know care very much for

renju so I am sure all the new Central Committee will make a great

job.



I also know the new Web master Frank Arkbo will make a great job. He

also knows a lot about renju and he also cares for renju. He has been

playing renju for about 20 years just as Peter and I.



Tommy Maltell

President of RIF from the start on the 8th of August 1988 till the

General Assembly in Kyoto in August 2001





Opening words from the new president of RIF

===========================================

Dear Renju Friends.



It is a big honour for me to be elected as the president for the

Renju International Federation.



Looking back at my predecessor, Tommy Maltell's 12 years as President,

a lot of things have happened. In that time it was three member

countries and we did not know what we could  expect from the future.



RIF made international rules and established the World Championship,

European Championship, Youth Championship (World and European), Women

Championship and  Team World Championship. An international rating

list was created. Even computer programs  have their own championship.



The Internet revolution made a championship by mail much easier and

quicker. Ten years ago we had to wait for ordinary letters, which was

quite frustrating many times.



The Renju Newsletter is very much appreciated by many players all

over the world.



Globally, the world of Renju is bigger now. The latest years, our

game has gained popularity in some Asian countries. The level of

playing has reached to a higher level.



Personally, I have some visions for the future. Of course it is

desirable to get more member countries, especially in those areas

that still are "white spots" on the renju map. But we must  not

forget to work for that renju activities continue in the countries

where Renju already  exists.



In order to become more professional we must see that some things

happen. I mean for example qualification for referees. We must have

an open mind about the opening rules, but  also pay respect to the

tradition. More books about Renju must be written and published.



The work of the official commissions must be better. I think that the

way of slow progress is better here because everyone of us work

voluntarily.



Finally, I want to thank the former President, Tommy Maltell for his

work during the first 12 years of RIF.

Important, Emergency!!

======================



To participants of 7th Renju WC in Kyoto (All people who come to Kyoto)



I think you are ready to come to Kyoto. I guess you worry the transportation

between Kansai(or Narita) airport and Kyoto Park Hotel. So I tell you how to

come there.



So far, many participants from lots of countries are made entry. They will come

to Japan around QT date. However, we can not assure we meet all participants at

airport, because every country will arrive perfectly at different time. Besides,

if we meet you at airport, the cost will increase and we can not keep members

to meet you. So please come to Kyoto Park Hotel BY YOURSELF.



We will be waiting you for about 3 hours after you arrive at Kansai Airport.

When you arrive at Park Hotel, you will be able to relax in the comfortable

room. I show you how to go to Park Hotel below. We are looking forward to

seeing there.



++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++







*From Kansai Airport



1)Use Haruka Express Cost---\3690(one way per one person) Need Time---about 70

min. Comment---comfortable,easy,fast



2)Use Rapid train You use Kankuu-Kaisoku bound for Kyobashi. You should change

train at Osaka station to Biwako line bound for Maibara,Yasu or Nagahama.(all

train will stop at Kyoto) Cost---\1830(one way per one person) Need Time---

about 2hours Comment---not so bad,cheap,a littel complicated



**Caution! There are two lines at Kansai Airport. You must use JR line not

Nankai line. There is train terminal next to Airport terminal(only one minutes

walk)



*From Narita Airport



You should use Narita Express and leave at Tokyo terminal.( change lines) Then

you should use Shinkansen train to Kyoto. Cost---about \ 16000(one way per one

person) Need Time---about 5hours



**Caution! We have not decided that anybody can meet foreign participants at

Narita Airport. In case of not meeting, I show you how to go to Kyoto.





It is about 2 km far from Kyoto station.So,

1)Use taxi---about \800

2)Use bus---\200 The name of bus stop is "Sanjuusangendou".

3)Walk---\0 but tough!!



**Caution! Look at the home page of Kyoto Park Hotel. I recommend you print out

the map and keep it. http://www.kyopark.co.jp/access/traffic.htm



If you are lost, you had better call phones.

 Kyoto Park Hotel   075-525-3111

 Hayakawa's portable phone  090-8482-5757

**I recommend you should write down this phone number.



++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++



The arrival schedule of foreign participants we know so far.



Country   Number of person Date Arrival Time Airport

Armenia 	  3	   28/7        ?      Kansai

China	      2(Wang Zi)   2/8	       ?      Narita

Dear RIF members



Kyoto WC will be held soon. I have some messages for you about QT.



1)If the number of QT participants is odd, I recommend Sou Miyagawa, 11

  years old,1st dan.

  He is very young but recently become strong.

2)Japanese QT participants are follwing;

  Kazuto Hasegawa (by rating)

  Hideki Nara (by rating)

  Masato Kusajima (replace of Nara, the 2nd of last BT)

  Syoki Sunagawa (by Japanese right)

  Hiroshi Okabe (by Japanese right)

  (Sou Miyagawa, if odd number)

3)I have not got the entry form from China.

  3 Chinese officers will come.

  For me, it is better to take part more countries to get sponsors.

  So I suggest Chinese participant in BT will change for participating in QT

  and I am now requsesting for Mr.Na to allow it.

  Chinese participant is Mr.Wang Zi--12 years old.

4)It is different between Korean participants in QT and application name of

  visa?? I ask for Korea but I am not able to contact.

5)We need all participants photo. (We will make ID card)

  If you don't send photo, please send your photo as soon as possible.

as before, because it will take some time before I am warm enough in my new role

as Webmaster.



You are all very welcome to suggest improvements about the RIF site.



I have corrected the URL of the web page where you subscribe to Renju Newsletters.

We have just now 4 candidates for the 5 places

in the RIF Central Committee after the General Assembly in Japan:



Peter Jonsson and Stefan Karlsson from Sweden and

Alexander Nosovsky and Pavel Salnikov from Russia.



All these candidates are according to my opinion very good candidates.

The only question is which will be the main task for each player.



There should be a candidate from Japan

Yoshimi Hayakawa will withdraw)

but no one from Japan seems interested

so member-countries are welcome with suggestions

for the 5th candidate from another country.



Member-countries are also welcome with suggestions

for the auditor as Lars B Melin will withdraw.



I still miss all reports from all RIF Commissions.
