GUO JUAN WORKSHOP PREPARES FLORIDA GO COMMUNITY FOR SPRING TOURNAMENT

Saturday April 10, 2010

Twenty students ranging from 10-kyu to 5-dan gathered in Orlando, FL March 27-28 to participate in a workshop with Guo Juan 5P, a top pro and founder of the Guo Juan Internet Go School. The workshop consisted of sessions that were divided into two groups — 5d-3k and 4k-10k — as well as combined sessions.  These included lectures, exercises, games, and game reviews, predominantly covering “Common Mistakes” and emphasizing mid-game fighting.  In addition to in-depth study, there were fun activities such as a spelling-bee style elimination team go game and an outdoor simul with Guo Juan on a beautiful sunny Sunday morning.  Attending players came from all over Florida, including Sarasota, Miami, Orlando, Gainesville, Jacksonville, and Merritt Island, many seeking to hone their skills for the annual Orlando Go Tournament, to be held May 8-9 at the University of Central Florida.  The workshop was organized by Joshua Lee (4d), head of Go Orlando chapter of the AGA.
