Advanced GO Class, Winter-Spring 2019

Yue Zhang’s new Advanced Go class, for players single-digit kyu and stronger, got off to a false start two weeks ago. Because of its unique structure, the class works best if at least six students participate; but only two showed up. (Yue kindly played simultaneous games with them.)

So, pre-registration is now required, either in person at the Go Center (a sign-up sheet is on the reception desk), or via the online registration page. Register by Monday evening prior to the class. (For example, to attend the Thursday, February 7 session, you should register no later than Monday, February 4.) Sessions that don’t have six or more registered will be canceled. (So get a bunch of your Go rivals to sign up too!)

Classes will run Thursdays, 7:00 – 9:00 PM at the Go Center. Tuition for these unique two-hour classes is $25 per class, including Go Center admission ($20 per class for Youth under 18, and Go Center voting members). Scholarships are available for players for whom the tuition would be a burden, bringing the cost to just $10 per class; and the application process is simple — email or talk to Mike (the programs manager) for info.

The class will feature group games and AI-assisted review, among other things. Rated 7 dan in the AGA, Yue has twice won the Open section at Seattle tournaments, and has years of experience teaching college.
