An unusually strong field of 30 players entered last weekend’s Heartland Harvest tournament organized by the Bradley Go Association and the Quad Cities Go Club in Peoria, IL. Austin Kupon 3d went 5-0 in a Dan division headed by two 6-dan players. Second place went to Xuyu Xiang 6d with a score of 4-1. In the second division (1-7 kyu), Myron Souris 1k took first on tie-breaks over Ken Crumpler 6k and Stephen Choung 7k, all at 4-1. David Muskovitz 8k won the third division (8 kyu and below) on tie-break over Matt Mueller 11k, both with a score of 4-1. Clark Wierda was awarded a special prize of black and orange go stones in jack-o-lantern bowls for traveling the greatest distance for the tournament. “More than half the field benefited from the generous merchandise prizes provided by Kiseido/Yutopian, Slate and Shell, sundaygolessons.com and Yellow Mountain Imports,” reports TD Roy Schmidt.
