This year’s Portland Go Tournament – set for October 29-30 at Lewis & Clark College in Portland, OR — will involve no less than four 6-dans, reports organizer Peter Drake. “Guozhong Zhuang, his son Vincent — who recently represented the U.S. in the World Youth Go Championship – Nicholas Zhirad, and Solomon Choe (self-promoting from 5.9),” says Drake. “Lesser dans and single- and double-digit kyu players should also be present in abundance.” The two-day, five-round handicap tournament is the largest annual tournament in Oregon and is again being held at Lewis & Clark College, recently ranked as the second most beautiful campus in the country by the Princeton Review. The tournament director is experimenting with the new software from goclubs.org, which was used successfully at the Tacoma Go Club’s recent Back-To-School tournament.
