Myung-Wan Kim 9P Added To EJ Roster

Friday December 17, 2010

Now your AGA membership could win you a free pro commentary! Send in your dan-level game record by next Monday and it could be chosen for a commentary by three-time U.S. Open champion Myung-wan Kim 9P (r), the latest addition to the E-Journal’s growing roster of contributing professionals and top players. Kim – whose other titles include the first Strong Player’s Online Tournament (SPOT1) in May 2010 – is a Korean professional (he made the quarterfinals of the 10th Samsung Cup in 2005 and took second place in the 12th BC Card Cup) who now lives and teaches in the Los Angeles area and who’s also widely-known for his 2008 historic demonstration game against MoGo running on an 800 processor supercomputer. Kim’s debut commentary will be on a dan-level game; email your game (sgf file required) to us at with “Kim commentary” in the subject line BY MIDNIGHT JANUARY 24. Please be sure to include your AGA number, as this is a member’s-only benefit.
