[Seattle Go Center] Summer Class Schedule Similar to Spring

Dear Go Players,


Our classes in June and July will basically follow the same schedule as in the spring.   August will have fewer classes, but plenty of special events.  Usually we have pros visiting Seattle before and after the National Go Congress, which will be in San Diego Aug 5 – 12.   Already we have scheduled Maeda Ryo 6P and  Kang Min Hoo 2P for simultaneous games at the Go Center on Tuesday, Aug. 1.


Nick Sibicky will continue to teach the Double Digit Kyu Player (DDK) class in June; we will have guest teachers in July.  This is on Mondays at 6:30 p.m.  So if you want to be in the live audience for one Nick’s Youtube lectures, you have 4 more classes before he takes a summer break.  By the way, here is a link to Nick’s Youtube channel:



The Single Digit Kyu Player (SDK) class  will continue on Wednesdays, at 7:00 p.m.  This class is mostly taught by Peter Nelson 5d.  In addition to giving presentations, Peter is very willing to review games.  He usually has a computer and digital projector set up, so if you send him a .sgf file, he can project it.  Andrew Jackson will be teaching some nights as well. Andrew did a great job as a Go Commentator during the recent AlphaGo Games.  You can find those games on the DeepMind Youtube Channel:



Thursday nights, starting at 6:30, will continue to have beginner’s instruction with Larry Eclipse.  Larry reports that this is turning into a couple’s night.  On May 18, he taught 3 pairs of beginners.


We hope to see you soon!
