WU, KUANG & YANG TOP N.C. TRIANGLE TOURNEY

Monday October 4, 2010

Perennial champion Changlong Wu 7d was joined on the Triangle Memorial Tournament’s winner’s podium by Jeff Kuang 5d and Jimmy Yang 4d as co-winners of the Triangle’s Open section. The tenth annual edition of the Triangle Memorial Tournament was held in Umstead State Park in Cary, North Carolina September 25.  A total of 32 players from North Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and Maryland spent a summery day playing in the park until sunset, with a picnic lunch provided by the Triangle Go Group.  Following tradition, all the entry fees were returned to the players as prizes, which were augmented by a generous donation of books and certificates for Chinese language and cultural lessons from the Confucius Institute at North Carolina State University. Winner’s Report: Section A (1-2D) was topped by Joseph Contarino and Craig Garrett, both 3-1. The only perfect score of the day was recorded by Andrew Zalesak in Section B (3-6k), followed by Alex Panaccione at 3-1.  Steven Mabe at 3-1 won Section C, and perseverance awards went to Danielle Ward and Alvin Chen in Section D.
