US Go Congress Updates: Friday Night “Big Broadcast” Set; Fierce Battle for ’15 US Open Masters Title; Crazy Go Photos Posted; Game Records Wanted; Caption Contest

Friday August 7, 2015

Friday Night “Big Broadcast” Set: Top-board US Open Masters games will be broadcast live with professional commentary on KGS and streamed on YouTube; Congress attendees can watch in person in the main playing area. The broadcast starts at 7p CST.

Fierce Battle for ’15 US Open Masters Title:
Unlike last year, when Mark Lee plowed through the field at the U.S. Open Masters, it’s safe to say that after six rounds, this year’s competition is wide open. With three rounds still to play, there are four 5-game winners:  defending champion Mark Lee, Zirui Song, Yulin Tong and Chen Wang. Lee lost to Youyin Cao in the fourth round; Zirui Song lost to Yulin Tong in the 2015.08.06_crazygo-bensonfourth round; Yulin Tong lost to Mark Lee in the 6th round, and Chen Wang lost to Mark Lee in the third round. Click here for complete results — and top-board game records through Round 6.
