Yen, Moon, Torres & Lin Win at Evanston, IL Tourney

Monday June 24, 2013

The Evanston (IL) Go Club’s “Here Comes The Sun” tournament last weekend drew 19 players. Winners were Albert Yen 7d, Laura Moon 2k, Tim Torres 8k and Crystal Lin 16k. “No one guessed the meaning of the name of the tournament, although there were many good attempts,” reports TD Mark Rubenstein. “The name is based on the fact that on June 22 – the same date as the tournament — in 1633 The Holy Office in Rome forced Galileo Galilei to recant his view that the Sun, not the Earth, is the center of the Universe.”
