Our good friend Ryo Maeda 6P, and a fellow pro from the Kansai Ki-in, Koyo Hoshikawa 3P, will be visiting the Seattle Go Center next week, on their way to the Go Congress in Minnesota.
On Tuesday, July 28, they will be playing simultaneous games in the afternoon, starting at 3:00 p.m. There may be more simultaneous games in the evening, depending on how they are feeling after their long journey. The fee for a game is $10.
On Wednesday, July 29, Maeda Sensei will give a lecture at 7:00 p.m. He is one of the most popular lecturers at the US Go Congress, and we highly recommend this evening at the Go Center. The lecture will be aimed at Single Digit Kyu Players, but all are welcome. General Admission is $10, while students and voting members pay $5.
We look forward to meeting Mr. Koyo Hoshikawa. He is 26 years old, from Kagawa prefecture, and he is a disciple of Mr. Yuuichi Sonoda 9P. He comes from an accomplished family. His father was Nobuaki Hoshikawa 9P, and he has two brothers who are also professionals.
After the Go Congress in early August, we will have more distinguished visitors. Check out our events schedule for the details!
