[Seattle Go Center] AlphaGo Watch Parties Next Week May 22-26

Dear Go Players,


Next week, we will be open late to watch the AlphaGo games and events being broadcast live from China with our digital projector.  And yes, we will have free pizza and other take-out provided by the AGA Chapter Rewards program.  Last year, we had over 50 people watching the first AlphaGo game with Lee Sedol.  The three games between top Chinese player Ke Jie and AlphaGo are on Monday evening, May 22nd, Wednesday evening, May 24th, and Friday evening, May 26th.  The games begin at 7:30 p.m. our time, but since these games have long time periods, the commentary may not begin until sometime around 9 or 10 p.m.  (By the way, we are getting these schedules from the Korean site BadukTV.   http://www.tvbaduk.com/info/schedule.asp    I do not have specific information on how the English commentary will be presented, but I expect it will be on the AGA youtube channel.  https://www.youtube.com/user/USGOWeb )


On Tuesday evening, there will be an “Artificial Intelligence” Open Forum/Summit, starting at 6 p.m. our time.  We will be projecting that as well.  And on Thursday, there will be Pair and Team Events, starting at 5:30 p.m.  We will show that too.  Our calendar is at http://www.seattlego.org/events/


These games usually run late, often past midnight.  If you are volunteer with a building key, and you can host one of these late nights, please contact me. 


We hope to see you next week.  This is a good time for our Eastside friends to visit; they can come over after rush hour and still see the game, since it goes so late.
