Young Lions Tourney Returns

Wednesday October 17, 2012

The popular Young Lions tourney, for school aged youth, is back with a new twist.  Based on the tournaments in Hikaru no Go, where the newest professionals take on the top insei, the Young Lions has become one of the premier youth tourneys online.  This year the winners will get a special treat though, 1st and 2nd place in the top bracket will get a chance to play a game with our very first crop of American pros, Andy Liu 1P and Gansheng Shi 1P.  The event is run by the American Go Honor Society (AGHS) and has developed a reputation for picking some of the top young players in the US. “Returning competitors, are you curious how much you have improved?” asks AGHS Promotion Head Junhee Kim, “new go players, are you up for the challenge? Come sign up for fun, experience, and most importantly because of your love for go!”  The tourney will feature brackets for all levels, with prizes and glory for all skill levels. See www.aghs.cc for rules and registration. The tournament will be held on KGS in the AGHS Tournaments Room on November 17th and 18th. E-mail aghsregister@gmail.com for more info. -Paul Barchilon, E-J Youth Editor.
