[Seattle Go Center] Watch Party tonight Friday for 3rd AlaphaGo Game

Come to the Go Center tonight as we continue to watch together the historic man versus machine, game 3 between Lee Sedol 9p and Google DeepMind's AlphaGo.  Lee is behind now 2-0 in the 5 game series.  Can he score one for humanity?

More than 60 people turned out for game one.  We had about 20 people for Wednesday's game 2. Come enjoy the company of fellow Go players tonight for game 3.

The game will be shown by video projector starting at 8 pm.  Doors will be open about 6:30 pm.  We have the whole parking lot after 6 pm.  Please remember to put your parking passes out.  If our lot fills up, you can try the free street parking on left side of 7th Ave NE, where the buses park in the daytime.  (This is past the freeway entrance.)

The game will also be broadcast in English on two YouTube channels.  The official Google DeepMind YouTube Channel will have commentary intended for a general audience by Go professional Michael Redmond 9p, and Chris Garlock of the AGA E-journal. 
Redmond grew up in California, but lives in Japan, where he is a top ranked player with the Japan Go Association (Nihon Ki-in).
The American Go Association YouTube Channel will have deeper analysis for Go players by Korean pro Cho Hyeyeon 9p, and our own Andrew Jackson 4d, starting an hour later.
