Zhang, Chiu and Qu Lead Bay Area Go Monthly

Monday February 21, 2011

Two dozen players ranging from 19 kyu to 7 dan met up in Palo Alto, CA on February 12 for a relaxed but serious ratings tournament. Continuous pairing is used in the Bay Area Go monthly tournaments so that players can play as many or as few games as they want, without having to wait around for slower players to finish their games before the next round can begin.

Next month’s ratings tournament is scheduled for March 19 in Menlo Park, CA. Photo by Lisa Schrag
