Bigger Tiny Boards: 13×13 Tournament Report

Monday August 11, 2014

Go is played on big boards, on little boards, and boards in between; last night was the night at the US Go Congress for those who love the 13×13. Directed by veteran 13×13 Tournament Director Jim Hlavka, 40 players split into eight tables by rank, with round-robins at each table yielding eight table winners. Throughout the rest of the week these finalists will play off in a single- elimination series to choose the kyu and dan champions. Winner of their tables and vying for the dan championship are: Gabby Su 5D, Forest Song 5D, April Ye 1D (at right), and Eric Wainwright 1D. Playing off for the kyu championship are: Anthony Long 4k, Jeff Wu 5k, Ann Wu 10k, and Eric Hookay 13k.
