Saturday March 26, 2016

Andy Liu 1P topped the March 19 Boston Spring Open 2016 Go Tournament, held at the Microsoft New England R&D 2016.03.26_boston-balloons(NERD) Center. Jie Liang 7d took second and DH Yun 5d was third. 54 players participated. The tournament also featured “echo-friendly drone technology” (aka balloons) to set up life-death problems. “A Ph.D candidate in Physics major from MIT concluded that the more difficult the problem is, the more weight it will have, hence the balloon will fly lower,” reports Chun Sun. “Many players agreed to her theory.” Complete report, results and more photos here.
