Jung Hoon Lee 7d, Robert Meyer 5k, and Andrew Jung 11k, all won their divisions at the Rocky Mountain Fall Go Tournament, held Nov. 2nd in Aurora, CO. 25 players competed, including 13 youth, who kept the affair lively. The tournament was run by Alex Yavich, 3d. Lee was back in prime form this time around (after an uncharacteristic loss at last April’s tournament), with a perfect record. Solomon Smilack 3d also scored a perfect record, but lost to Lee on a tiebreaker. Meyer, up from the Colorado Springs Go Club, won his first three rounds, but lost the fourth. He also won on a tiebreaker though, narrowly edging out pint sized terror Robin Luo 1k, who is only nine years old. In the double digit kyu bracket Andrew Jung 11k fought neck and neck with Stas Irisov 12k. Both won three games, but Jung defeated Irisov to win his section. -Story and photo by Paul Barchilon, E-J Youth Editor.
