May we suggest you take the time to enjoy Belgium a bit? Since Brussels is quite centrally located you can get to most places in Belgium rather easy by train. You can go and enjoy the old city of Bruges, enjoy the sea-breeze and some shrimp in Ostend; go out to visit the old cathedral and the statue of Nello and Patrasche in Antwerp. More a fan of festivals and music, go to Ghent, they have their yearly celebrations, worth a visit. Or perhaps you want to seek out the south of Belgium a bit more?
- Explore the cool underground world of the caves of Han-Sur-Lesse and the nearby animal park. - Discover the major heritage site of the Stavelot Abbey, and the Spa Francorchamps race circuit and its museum just next to it. - Learn more about the famous battle of Waterloo and visit the Waterloo Memorial Museum.
Or just stay in Brussels and visit the botanical gardens, the Comic book museum or the Atomium.

BookSigning Event for Rational Endgame
Today, from 13 to 14 o’clock, there will be a booksigning event for Antti Törmänen’s second book, Rational Endgame. The event will take place at the book store Marchand (located on the third floor).
Rational Endgame is a 122-page theory book that covers the basics of modern endgame theory, teaching how to precisely count the profit that a single move makes. The book also includes 20 exercises, five of which are challenging whole-board problems, and an endgame move bestiary that lists common endgame moves and their respective values. The book is priced at 17 euro for the softcover and 27 euro for the hardcover.
The London Go Centre has uploaded a video on YouTube in which Antti demonstrates some of the theory explained in the book – if you are wavering about getting the book, please check the video out! (And while you are at it, please consider subscribing to the London Go Centre YouTube channel! When they get 1,000 subscribers, they’ll get improved streaming rights, which will improve the visibility of the game on YouTube.)
You will receive a short daily newsletter and round announcement every morning, except if you request not to. You can request to be taken of the subscribers-list at the infodesk or by sending an email to email@example.com with title "Unsubscribe".
