Thursday September 22, 2016

This Saturday, the first New York Youth Team Go Championship will be held, reports Stephanie Yin. “This should be a 2016.09.22_nyc-youth-tourneyregular yearly tournament for kids,” says Yin. This year, there were 15 teams that wanted to register, “however, we couldn’t fit them all so that I had to select ten stronger teams instead. Next year, I will definitely look for a bigger place.”The tournament is being hosted by the New York Institute of Go, “which is my go school,” says Yin, and is co-sponsored by the Queens Library, which is providing the space, and the Peking University Alumni Association of Greater New York, which provided the flyers.

“I hope this will help the youth go community in the US,” says Yin, adding that she hopes to hold some more tournaments in New York areas “in order to motivate people to play more go.”
