The Iwamoto Youth 19×19 Tournament will be held Sunday, May 19, at the Seattle Go Center, at 1:00 p.m. If the open section has a least 4 players, the first place prize will be $50. There will also be an handicapped section with book and equipment prizes. This is a great way for youth to start playing rated games. The tournament is free, but players must be under 18, and have an American Go Association membership, which costs $10. AGA memberships can be set up online or in person on the day of the tournament. Advanced registration is not required, but please send an email with your playing strength if you know you are coming.[ Read more... ]
