Washington go organizer Hal Small is hosting a special 2-day workshop with Japanese professional Tadashi Sasaki 8P on May 15-16. “Those of you who attended last year’s U.S. Go Congress already know that Sasaki-sensei is a fabulous teacher as well as a delightful person,” says Small, “but what may come as a pleasant surprise is that this workshop will be free!” Small reports that the workshop is “a gift to the local DC area go community by the organizers of the past Go Congresses held in the DC area,” and will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis, with preference given to DC-area players. Space is limited; contact Small soon if you would like to attend: “Please specify if you would like to come for one or both days, and if you wish to participate or to just audit.” Beginning 10a each day, the workshop will start with 3-on-one simuls with Sasaki, while other players play each other and record their games.  Then after lunch (included), Sasaki will review games. “Saturday evening we will have a banquet in Sasaki-sensei’s honor,” adds Small. “This will be at appropriate cost to participants, details to be worked out later.”
