Bongkyun Moon 5D Wins Twin Cities Go Club Summer Tournament

Monday July 21, 2014

The Twin Cities Go Club 2014 Summer Tournament was held on Sunday, July 20th, in the clubhouse of the Goodrich Golf Course in St. Paul, MN. The tournament was four rounds using McMahon pairings. 29 individuals participated, 14 of whom registered as 1 dan or stronger. Player strength ranged from 5 dan to 16 kyu. “It’s always a pleasure the play at this venue, which provides a peaceful background to some great games of go,” reports local organizer Aaron Broege. “The weather was warm with a slight breeze, allowing some individuals to play their games outside.” Bongkyun Moon 5D, winner of the Twin Cities 2014 Winter Tournament, came out on top again with four wins. Yi Tong 1D took second place and Josh Larson 3D placed third. Being the only other person to win all four of his games, Shuping Wang 1K “had a fantastic day, placing fourth,” says Broege. After the final game, Bongkyun Moon used the demonstration board to briefly review the game for the other players.
