Bay Area Go Players Association held its first ever Go Expo Day on May 2 in Oakland, CA. Seven teachers had their hands full teaching go and giving out free go sets to an enthusiastic crowd of about 100. “We are thrilled at how many people came out to learn about go,” said event organizer Roger Schrag. The regular monthly ratings tournament took place concurrently, with a field of 27 players ranging from 17 kyu to 5 dan. Brian Leahy 3d led the dan division with a 3-0 record, while Patrick Wang 15k led the kyu division 4-0.
