Sunday January 22, 2012

Andy Zalesak 1d (right, in photo, playing Paul Celmer) took top honors in the top band of the Triangle Go Group’s Friendship/Ratings tournament, held on Sunday, January 15, in Raleigh, North Carolina. Zalesak won three of his four games, with four others in this highly competitive band – two 6-dans, a 3-dan, 5-dan, and two 1-dans — tied for second place with 2-2 results. In the second band, Thomas McCarthy was undefeated, going 4-0 for the day.  Stephen Allen came in 2nd, with a 3-1 record.  In the third band, another Zalesak, Matthew, won all 4 of his games.  John Aiken won the three games that he played, but declined prize money, which was awarded to young Alvin Chen. As usual, all entry fees were returned as cash prizes.
