The Orange County Go Club was the top winner in the club competition at the recent Cotsen Open, winning $1,000. In second place ($300) was the 2015.11.01_Cotsen-club-winner-IMG_1146Santa Monica club and Arizona ($200) took third place. Yilun Yang awarded special prizes to Cotsen Tournament Director Chris Sira and James Chen for his many contributions to the early years of the Cotsen Open.

The 2015 Cotsen crosstab has now been posted. The Cotsen livestream videos have also been posted now, including a very brief one in which Mark Lee reviews key points in his Round 3 game against Aaron Ye.

Tournament Organizer Samantha Davis thanked Assistant Tournament Organizer Wenguang Wu, Tournament Assistant Katie Dicus, Webmaster Laura Mayer-Sommer, Photographer Brian “Ferrari” Peregrina and many volunteers, including Sighris Sargon, Paru Maheta-Sargon and Chris Kirschner.

E-Journal team leader Chris Garlock’s crack recording/broadcast team included Andrew Jackson (YouTube live-streaming), Dennis Wheeler, Joe Cepiel, Richard Dolen and Jim Woh (game recorders). Xiaocheng Hu (xhu) provided the graphics for the video stream.
