Two-time US Open champ Myung Wan Kim 8P leads a field of over 40 highly-ranked players already registered for the first Strong Players’ Online Tournament I. Registration is open through this Thursday, April 15; players must be AGA members, members of the Canadian or Mexican Associations, at least 5.0 AGA rating or equivalent – professionals are welcome — and have a webcamera, Skype and KGS accounts. Undefeated in all AGA tournaments since he moved to L.A. in 2008, Kim currently holds the highest rating in North America, making him the odds-on favorite in the online tourney scheduled to start April 24, although there are seven players registered so far with ratings above 8.0 .
