Kevin Zhou 5D Tops Chi Tourney

Monday December 3, 2012

Basking in the spring-like weather, 29 go players battled all day at the December 1 Entertainment for Menschen tournament in Chicago, IL. “It was so nice out that Shanthanu Bhardwaj 8k bicycled 37 miles to get there,” reports TD Bob Barber. Until Saturday, Zihang Yin had been undefeated in AGA play, and despite finally losing a game, the 8-year old Yin “was gracious enough to invite us all to join him at Legoland,” Barber says. “After some discussion, we opted for pizza and beer.”
