Crystal-trophy“You may have just made your resolutions for the new year, but young kyu players under the age of 18 from North America will not have to wait long to vie for glory in the 6th North American Kyu Championships (NAKC) on February 2nd,” says Youth Coordinator Justin Teng. “This one-day, four-round tournament will be hosted on KGS, where the top Junior (under 13) and Senior (under 18) players in each of 5 divisions can win a marvelous crystal trophy engraved with his or her name.” The champions of the top division will also be granted entry into this year’s Redmond Cup, a tournament traditionally open only to dan-level players. In addition, courtesy of the American Go Foundation, players who participate in all rounds of the tournament are eligible for a $200 scholarship to the 2019 US Go Congress in Madison, Wisconsin. Register for the NAKC by January 27th, and read more about the rules and format here. – Paul Barchilon, EJ Youth Editor
