MYUNG-WAN KIM 9P MAKES THREE-PEAT DONATION TO AGF

Saturday August 28, 2010

During the August 7 closing banquet at this year’s Go Congress in Colorado Springs, Myung-Wan Kim 9P (r) again donated $500 of his US Open prize winnings to the American Go Foundation (AGF). “The American go community is very fortunate to have Myung-Wan Kim living and teaching here,” said Paul Barchilon, AGF Vice President and Youth Coordinator for the American Go Association (AGA). “And his support of our youth activities is a testament to his commitment to the future of go in this country.” This is the third consecutive year Kim has donated to the AGF, which promotes scholastic and youth go programs in the U.S. “I always want to do something for the go community in the U.S.,” Kim said in 2008 when he made his first contribution at the Go Congress in Portland OR. This year he has a new plan. “I think building the professional system is the most important thing the U.S. go community needs to do. I will work with Hankuk-kiwon (Korea Baduk/Go Association) to make that happen.”

TANG NAMED REDMOND MEIJIN

Monday August 16, 2010

Curtis Tang 7d,  was named Honorary Redmond Meijin at the final awards banquet at the US Go Congress, Aug. 7th.  Tang, now 17 years old, has a long history of success in the Redmond.  He took the Junior Division championship in 2001, 03, and 04, and then again in 2006 in the Senior Division.  This year marks his fifth win in the Cup, and also the last year he is eligible to play in it.  The only other person ever to win five times is Eric Lui, 7d, who won his fifth time in 2001, and was also named Redmond Meijin.  The title is honorary, and for life, so both young men are now Honorary Meijin.  None Redmond herself presented the Cup to Tang.  His winning matches in the finals are available online.
