Malcolm and Yang Lead Dan Players at Bay Area Go Monthly

Monday March 21, 2011

Twenty five adults and kids escaped the pouring rain this past Saturday to play in the Bay Area Go Players Association monthly ratings tournament. The event, held May 19 at the Ing Goe Center in Menlo Park, CA, drew players ranging from 7 dan to 20 kyu. Four played in a rated tournament for the very first time. The young ones ruled the day, with six of the eight top game winners under the age of 12. In the Dan division, Zhirui Yang 6d and Richard Malcolm 2d each won three games. In the Kyu division, Larry Qu 3k and Ciaran Fitzgerald 20k (right, in photo) won four games apiece. The next Bay Area Go tournament is coming up April 9 in Palo Alto, CA.
