Yet one more reason to attend this year’s U.S. Go Congress is a brand-new state team tournament. The Wisonet Cup State Team GoTournament (WCSTGT) will feature six teams playing a 5-round tournament during the upcoming Congress in Black Mountain, North Carolina. Each team will have six players, including three dan-level players, two kyu-level players and one supplemental player between 5k and 4d, captained by a dan-level player. The tournament is sponsored by Wisonet Inc., which specializes in the design, development and sale of Pentominoes puzzles. The teams will compete for $1,500 in cash prizes and each player will receive a free “Super Pentominoes” puzzle. Six teams will be invited based on Go Congress registration by state as of June 15, “since there are often many players who register just before the rates increase,” says AGA Tournament Coordinator Karoline Burrall. Players should send any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
