Bay Area Go’s monthly ratings tournament was held July 14 in San Francisco’s Japantown Center. This month’s event featured a field of 39 players ranging from 18 kyu to 7 dan. Linden Chiu 2d, who was awarded an honorary dan-level certificate from the Korean Baduk Association at last year’s US Go Congress, swept the dan division with a 4-0 record. In the kyu division, Jay Chan 1k, Allen Louderback 4k, Cameron Yu 7k, and Ciaran Fitzgerald 18k all led with 3-1 records. “Next month’s ratings tournament is scheduled for August 18 in Palo Alto, CA,” reports organizer Roger Schrag.
