Monday June 27, 2011

Princeton undergraduate Michael Chen 7d swept the field as sixteen strong players competed June 25-26 on KGS in the second online North America Ing Masters (NAIM) qualifier for the opportunity to be in the top 16 in this year’s NAIM, which will be held in at the U.S. Go Congress in August. Kevin Huang 7d, Calvin Sun 7d and KuoRuey Han 6d finished 3-1. A playoff between 3-win players Vincent Zhuang and Kevin Chao was set for Monday, June 27. Tremendous efforts by Tournament Director Tengxiao Yang and Changlong Wu helped players show friendship and high class as they accommodated an AGA player who had to temporarily travel to China.
