Justin Ching 4d, Willis Huang 3d, and William Xu 2k won the dan section of the Team Tournament in the Youth Room at the US Go Congress Friday, while Ethan Frank 6k, Bryan Tan 8k, and Logan Lancaster 10k won the kyu section. A dozen teams of three players each competed, with each team needing to win two out of three boards in order to win a match. Winning teams scored $25 gift certificates per player, and players who won all three games (regardless of how their team fared) also won $15 gift certificates. Based on the team matches in Hikaru no Go, team go has been quite popular at Congress in recent years, and often draws the highest attendance numbers of youth room events.
