Yen-Wei Huang, PhD student at University of Illinois,  (AGA 7d) won the December Insei League (supergroup) with a perfect score. This is one of the deciding games. Yen-Wei has decided to join the team of the Insei League teachers. He will teach and play with DGS inseis, replacing Natalya Kovaleva, Russian 6d. It was hard for Natalya to play 40 DGS games straight, so she went down from DGS 5d to DGS 2d after losing most of her games in the autumn league. For DGS inseis it will be harder to fight with Yen-Wei, who is currently DGS ranking #1 and 7d DGS.

The new DGS season started on January, 11; it’s still possible to register online.
