Calvin Sun 7d and Aaron Ye 4d both won their second round matches in the Redmond Cup Tuesday, Aug. 2nd, at the US Go Congress. Sun, who placed second to Gansheng Shi 7d in the qualifiers, ended up sweeping the finals with two wins in a row. Redmond finals are a best two out of three matches, so there will not be a third round. In the Junior Division, Sammy Zhang 4d fought valiantly, but was overwhelmed by Ye in both matches. All four kids won a free trip to congress to compete, and will split a $1,000 prize fund from the AGF. This year they will receive a special treat as Michael Redmond 9p will present the Redmond Cup in person at the awards banquet at the US Go Congress. Sun’s second round win is below, all of the final matches are on the crosstab. – Paul Barchilon, E-J Youth Editor. Photo: Gansheng Shi (l) and Calvin Sun (r).
