18 WIN THROUGH TO WORLD YOUTH QUALIFIER FINALS

Saturday April 10, 2010

Sixteen young players won entry into next week’s World Youth Go Championship (WYGC) Qualifier finals, where they will join Calvin Sun 7d and Ben Lockhart 5d for an 18-player single-elimination tournament. Thirty two youth competed in the online WYGC Qualifier last weekend, with competition fierce in all brackets.  In the junior division, Aaron Ye 1d led the field with four wins.  The senior division was dominated by Curtis Tang 8d, and Zhongxia Zhao 7d, who won all four games.  Several kyu players entered for the chance to play top ranked youth, and dan players gave their kyu opponents game reviews after each match.  The finals will be held on April 10-11 in the KGS AGA Tournaments room, with matches at 9a and 1p Pacific time.
