Dear Go Players,
The Seattle Go Center will be closed for the New Year’s Holiday on Tuesday, Dec. 31, and Wednesday Jan. 1. We will be open on Thursday Jan. 2 and Saturday Jan. 4 for our regular hours.
We have 6 visitors from China who have come for the Jin Chen Tournament on Sunday, Jan. 5. They include the professional Yao, Xiaomin 4P, who was a colleague of our teachers Yang, Yilun and Guo, Juan when they lived in China. So we look forward to meeting her! Our distinguished visitors will probably also visit the Go Center on Thursday and/or Saturday. I will send out another message when that schedule is established.
The Jin Chen Tournament is on Sunday, Jan. 5. Registration is on the day of the tournament, from 10:00 -10:30 a.m. There will be a 45 minute break for lunch after the first round. The tournament is three rounds, with an open section and several handicapped sections. The fee is $10 for youth and voting members; all others $15. The total purse for prizes is $1000.
You need to be an AGA member to play, since this a rated tournament. You can register online here:
This is our biggest tournament of the year, and we hope you can make it.
