Commemorative Pin for AGA TygemGo Online Pro Qualifier Participants

Wednesday May 23, 2012

All participants in the AGA TygemGo Online Pro Qualifier will receive a pin commemorating this first-ever Pro Qualifier competition. ”The design is pretty neat,” said President Allan Abramson. “Thanks to the Pro Committee for the idea, and the design.” Register here “and be sure to practice on Tygem for the June Qualifier!” adds Abramson. The pro qualifier is the American Go Association’s pioneering effort to establish AGA pros in the international scene, supported by the Korea Baduk Association and Tygem. “Our joint view is a long one, creating the pros and opportunities for international competition and training, which will ultimately improve all US players,” says AGA President Allan Abramson. “The goal is people who will be able to win internationally, in major tournaments. This may take years to achieve, but 2012 is the beginning.”
