Monday January 17, 2011

Becci Torrey 1d (at right, in photo) won the January 16 Massachusetts Go Association’s Winter Handicap Tournament, topping a field of 32 at the club in Davis Square, Somerville. Players ranged in strength from 18 kyu to 7-dan, and in age from 14 to septugenarian, reports TD Eva Casey, “with every decade in between represented.”  The players traveled from Western Massachusetts and Cape Cod, as well as Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine, New York, and  Rhode Island. “Seven women participated if you include the TD,” adds Casey. Gus Heck 2k and Doug Frantz 12k tied for second, while Laura Wu 12k came in third. Click here for photos. Photos courtesy Eva Casey.
