MD Open Drawing Players of All Strengths

Monday May 21, 2012

Just back from his appearance at the recent World Amateur Go Championship in China, Yuan Zhou 7d (at right) is among the top amateurs — others include Eric Lui 7d and, coming down from Canada, Phil Waldron 6d — who’ll be competing this weekend in the Maryland Open and AGA-Tygem Pro Prelim. Dozens of players ranging from 7-dan to 18-kyu have already registered for the 39th annual Open, which this year includes the first AGA-Tygem Pro Prelim, in which the top finishing player with qualifying citizenship earns the right to compete for pro certification this summer in North Carolina. The 2-day, 5-round tournament offers prizes at all levels, and top boards will be broadcast live on KGS by the E-Journal.
