It was a pleasant Sunday at the Seattle Go Center, with 19 players present for the monthly AGA ratings tournament. TD Daniel Top got the pairings out on time, and ran the tournament with his customary aplomb. Rounds 1 and 2 each had nine games. But two players in the second round fought deep into byo-yomi, and only a half-dozen players stayed until the bitter end; so round 3 had three games.
There were no three-game winners. Winning two games were Zhihong Yao 2d, Steve Ling 2k, Christian de Oro 4k, Brian Dai 8k, George Schmitten 8k, and John Johnson 9k.
Join us for the next monthly ratings tournament, Sunday July 1st! It’s free to play (but you do have to be a member of the AGA, and you do have to be a member of the Go Center or pay for your visit — under 18 is free, and adults first 10 visits are free).
