The first three rounds of the second Young Kwon National Online Tournament (YKNOT) will kick off this weekend. A field of 70 players from 16 kyu to professional will vie for nearly $3,000 in prizes sponsored by former US Open Champion Young Kwon. The tournament will provide high-level competition for participants, and the open section will be scored as a North American Ing Masters (NAIM) Qualifier. The player field will include professional players Mingming Yin and last year’s YKNOT champion, Zhanbo Sun, both of New York. Tune into the AGA Tournaments Room on KGS this weekend and next to watch the games. The tournament will be directed by a team including TD for Pairings Chris Kirschner, and online TDs Dennis Wheeler, Tina Zhang, Kevin Hwang, and Karoline Burrall. Tournament schedule and rules can be found at the tournament website.
