This month’s AGA ratings tournament in the San Francisco Bay Area was held July 9th in Palo Alto, CA. The playing field consisted of 24 players, including young players and adults ranging in strength from 20 kyu to 4 dan. Tournament organizer Roger Schrag estimates that at least half of the players will be heading to Santa Barbara soon to play in the upcoming US Go Congress. Kaiyang Liu 1d led the dan division with four wins, and Cieran Fitzgerald 20k led the kyu division, also with four wins. Next month’s ratings tournament is scheduled for August 13, also in Palo Alto.
