Samuel Gross 1d and April Ye 3k each won four games to lead the pack at the Bay Area Go monthly ratings tournament on August 14 in Palo Alto, CA. The playing field consisted of 35 players ranging from 5 dan to 30 kyu. Everyone got to play an average of three rated games, although some managed to fit in as many as five. For many, the monthly tournaments offer an opportunity to come out and play face to face go with players of similar strength. “Face to face go can be so much more social, fun, and rewarding than playing online,” observes tournament organizer Roger Schrag. Next month’s ratings tournament is scheduled for September 11, again in Palo Alto. Click here for more photos.
