Jason Clancy 6k (at left, in green sweater) took first place at the January 13 Massachusetts Go Association Winter Tournament, topping a 24-player field that ranged from 4 dan to 20 kyu. “Twenty three players pre-registered,” reports Tournament Director Eva Casey. “Three of those were no-shows, so twenty players got the pre-registration discount. The majority of the players joined or renewed membership in the Massachusetts Go Association, thus meriting an additional discount.” Casey thanked the Boylston Chess Club in Somerville for use of their premises.
Winners: First Place: Jason Clancy 6k; Second Place: Elliot Stern 7k; Third Place: Alex Linden 12k.
