Syracuse Tourney Breaks Attendance Record

Tuesday December 10, 2013

After three successive years of declining participation, the Syracuse Go Club’s Fall Self-Paired Tournament broke its all-time attendance record on November 23, with the 27 players more than doubling the attendance from the previous year.  Players ranging in strength from 5d to 28k played 55 AGA-rated games.  Bob Sollish 1d of Syracuse had the best individual record, with four wins and no losses against three other dan players and a 1k player.  Every participant was able to select a prize to take home at the end of the day, including several discounted books provided by Slate and Shell.
