Han Tops Milwaukee Tournament

Thursday July 28, 2011

It was a beautiful venue for a go tournament:  the Calatrava extension to the Milwaukee Art Museum, located right on the shore of Lake Michigan, on a gorgeous sunny day. The July 23 Milwaukee Summer Tournament was just part of a big weekend for Chinese culture:  hundreds of folks dressed in lovely clothes, demonstrating traditional arts and crafts.

Having won the 4d section at Congress last year, Changyu Han 5d played at 5d on Saturday, and won four out of four placing first.  David Rohde 4k won all his three — and actually hasn’t lost a tournament game all year — to win 1st in the High Kyu division; luckily for some, he’s taking a pass on this year’s Congress. And Peter Boyland tied for 1st place, low kyu with Isaac Wooden 17k, but Boyland graciously forsook his share of the prize.
