Twenty one kids and adults came out February 11 to play face-to-face go at the Bay Area Go monthly ratings tournament held at the home of the Palo Alto Go Club in Menlo Park, CA. Players ranged in strength from 20 kyu to 5 dan, and five players either joined or renewed their AGA membership in order to play in this tournament. In the dan division, Richard Malcolm 3d and Yue Fang 1d went undefeated with two wins apiece. In the kyu division, Bryan Tan 13k, Cieran Fitzgerald 19k, and Ben-Ami Lipkind 20k each won four games.
