Annual Syracuse self-pair tourney has “best-ever” turn-out

Notizie AGA - Gio, 13/12/2018 - 00:37

The Syracuse Go Club’s annual self-pair tournament on December 1 had 32 players, “its best turnout ever,” reports organizer
Richard Moseson. Twenty students participated, ranging in strength from beginner (eight students from the CNY Chinese School who played their first rated games), to quite strong (local high school senior Zhengbokang “Tony” Tang 8d and two 5d Cornell University students). Out of town players came from all directions (Ithaca, Utica, Rochester, and Oswego).

“Wonderful refreshments were furnished by many of the local players, allowing those who came for the whole day to play on without needing to run out for lunch, and at the end of the day everyone was able to select a new go book or other go-related-prize to take home,” says Moseson.

Historic Mexico-Korea baduk match set for Dec. 8

Notizie AGA - Ven, 07/12/2018 - 22:45

Encuentro de Baduk México-Corea 2018,  a cross cultural baduk (go in Korean) tournament is set for December 8th in Mexico City.  The match will be held in honor of  South Korea’s ambassador to Mexico, the event will take place at the Korean Cultural Center and the opening ceremony will feature its Director, Mr. Kijin Song. The format is a fast-paced, round robin match consisting of 5 team members, on one side Mexican nationals and on the other Korean residents and/or Korean descendants born in Mexico. Philipp Neubert, a german student from Myongji University who is doing  field research for his Ph.D thesis about go in Latin America is invited as an international observer.

The Korean Cultural Center and a Korean newspaper “El Coreano,” both with established headquarters in Mexico City, are organizing the event. “For many years there have been active Korean players with a limited interaction in their own community,” reports organizer Sid Avila,  “perhaps only Kim Chang-Ha,  a gentle friend and strong player has showed up and participated at the successful Mexican Go Congresses organized so far.”

“Since the  Korean Cultural Center opened their baduk workshop two years ago, there has been a steady increase in public interest for go. There have been two Baduk Festivals, workshops at universities, exhibitions and even international events like the recent Pan-american Baduk Championship 2018 where Aaron Ye, from the US claimed the title.  The Korean community seems to be welcoming the exciting idea that there are strong Mexican players who can compete with them. They are also surprised that baduk is taught at elementary schools, and played at universities, and that there are quite well organized events by the Mexican Go Association,” adds Avila. -Paul Barchilon, EJ Youth Editor.

GO Without Borders seeks beta testers

Notizie AGA - Mer, 05/12/2018 - 19:55

Bill Frezza and his colleague John Gaby have developed an online go variant called GO Without Borders that they say is perhaps the first practical online implementation of Toroidal GO, the concept of removing the edges of a go board by allowing the board to “wrap around” both horizontally and vertically.

“What is most fascinating about playing GO Without Borders is the fresh approach required regarding tactics and strategy because every joseki you ever learned is useless,” Frezza, a 12 kyu player, tells the E-Journal. “There is also a premium on good fighting skills. And yet it is still go with all the same rules.”

Frezza and Gaby are actively recruiting a small circle of beta testers to help debug and fully feature the program before public launch. Email go-without-borders+subscribe@googlegroups.com if interested.

Go in the News: Game Enthusiasts Gather Weekly in Brentwood to Play Ancient Board Game; Baduk Drives Success of Nongshim Noodles in China

Notizie AGA - Mer, 05/12/2018 - 11:51

Game Enthusiasts Gather Weekly in Brentwood to Play Ancient Board Game: Every weekend, you’ll find a group of people playing an ancient board game called Go at Fulin’s in Brentwood. Shawn Ray, of the Middle TN Go Club, spoke with us about the game and how the Middle TN Go Club came to be. The Club plays at Fulin’s in Brentwood every Saturday from 12p-4p and Sunday 5p-9p. Read more here.

Baduk Drives Success of Nongshim Noodles in China: Instant noodle giant Nongshim has capitalized on the popularity of go to drive sales of $280 million in China this year. In cooperation with the Korea Baduk Association, Nongshim founded a world championship known as the Nongshim Cup when it entered the country in 1999. Nongshim chairman Shin Chun-ho is a go enthusiast and wanted to link local fever for the game to the brand. When the tournament is held in China (the 20th edition was held there last month), fans gather in front of the venue or at large outdoor televisions to watch the match, which further promotes the brand.

Calvin Sun 1p wins inaugural California State Go Championship

Notizie AGA - Mar, 04/12/2018 - 02:19

An undefeated Calvin Sun 1p topped a field of 45 players to win the first annual California State Go Championship on November 24-25. The two-day, 5-round event was sponsored by the San Diego Go Club and held amid the beautiful surroundings of the San Diego Chess Club in Balboa Park. Players came from as far as the San Francisco Bay area to compete for the title.

Sun not only won the title of 2018 California Go Champion and collected a cash award and an individual trophy but will be the first to have his name engraved on a permanent state go champion plaque. Following him in the Open Section were Yi Wang (6-dan 2018 San Diego Champion) and Yufei Jin 6-dan.

“It was a special treat when American Go Association President Andy Okun, was present to help award the prizes to the winners,” reports organizer Ted Terpstra, president of the San Diego Go Club.

Other Section winners were:

Dan Section: 1st Dan Alvira 3-dan; 2nd Zhihong He 3.3-dan; 3rd Seowoo Wang 2.6-dan
Single-Digit Kyu Section: 1st Paul Margetts 2.4-kyu; 2nd Warren T Andrews 6.7-kyu; 3rd Kevin Charles Yang 7-kyu
Double-Digit Kyu Section: 1st Lucia Moscola 17.9-kyu; 2nd Wade Michael Smith 10.5-kyu; 3rd Alexander Niema Moshiri 11.5 Kyu

In conjunction with the California State Go Championship, a 5-round, 13×13 California Go Championship was held on Sunday, also at the SD Chess Club. Competing were 32 players many of whom were from the Hai Li Go School. All players earned a playing certificate with their rating as well as a medal with the logo of the San Diego Go Club on one side and the logo of the California Go Association on the other. Hai Li, a Chinese pro who has recently moved to Southern California, was the tournament director for the 13×13 tournament. He is also the president of the California Go Association which rated the 13×13 tournament.

2018 Girl’s State California Go Champion: Angelina Zhao (4-1)
2018 Boy’s California State Go Champion: Kai Yi; who was the only 5-0 player.

“With almost 80 go players competing, the 2018 California Go Championship was a huge success,” said Terpstra. To encourage participation, the San Diego Go Club paid all entry fees and cash prizes out of the profits from the 2017 U.S. Go Congress, which it hosted.

Correction: Calvin Sun’s rank has been updated to 1p; the AGA’s top amateur rank is 7d.

Bozulich on “Attacking and Defending Weak Groups”

Notizie AGA - Gio, 29/11/2018 - 15:00

“Attacking and Defending Weak Groups,” a new book by Richard Bozulich, is now available both as paperback and in digital form in the Go Books app. Weak groups are a crucial factor in the middle game of go, and this book covers all the techniques of attacking and defending weak groups. Each of the first nine chapters starts with a few examples of the technique under study, then continues with a few problems showing how that particular technique was used in a professional game. The tenth chapter presents additional problems whose solutions draw upon the techniques studied in the preceding nine chapters. The book is available in paperback from Kiseido and in digital form in the Go Books app for iPad, iPhone, and Mac. Regardless of which version you get, you can download the professional games used for the problems here.

Traveling Go Board: Montreal, Canada

Notizie AGA - Gio, 29/11/2018 - 15:00

by Peter Schumer

Montreal is just north of the border for go players in New York, Vermont, and New Hampshire. They have a thriving go community and a full time place to play go and enjoy some quality tea, baked goods, soups, and sandwiches at Senthe Tea House located at 6547 Saint-Hubert. They also hosted the 41st Canadian Open at College Jean-de-Brebeuf in early September. I often play in their tournaments; Americans are warmly welcomed!

But I recently discovered an interesting place to play go that the folks in Montreal might not even be aware of. While walking around Old Montreal I found a restaurant, The Keg Steak House and Bar, located at the corner of Saint Paul and Saint Jean-Baptiste that has an outdoor terrace with chairs and tables with full-sized go boards inscribed on them! This is probably unknown to the proprietors as well.

The Empty Board: Philosophical Reflections on Go #12

Notizie AGA - Mer, 28/11/2018 - 15:00

By Bill Cobb

As in life, there is a color issue in go that has an impact on most players’ experience. The fact that Black plays first has an obvious effect. Most players, at least in the early years of playing, find it more comfortable to be Black in a game. It provides a certain comfort to feel like you are in control of the game for at least the first few moves. This preference is particularly evident in handicap games, especially high handicap games where the player with the black stones starts with an enormous advantage but feels like the white stones are invincible. No matter how isolated or surrounded by black stones, a white stone just seems inherently strong and dangerous. “The white stones never die” is a saying familiar to weaker players. I’m not sure that this ever goes away completely, though players who are especially successful with Black may feel differently. The fact that AlphaGo won slightly more often with White than with Black when playing itself makes many feel that part of the problem is that the komi has gotten to be too large. At any rate, this is not a real problem in enjoying the game, but it would be nice if we could at least sometimes in life try a policy of Black goes first.
