The 9th season of the Massachusetts Go Foundation league is set to begin December 7th. As the league is completely online, it’s open to anyone who may be interested from 30kyu – 1kyu. The insei-inspired competition runs for five weeks, with games assigned Tuesday evenings, but participants are free to reschedule with their opponent. The next evening, games are reviewed by Dan-level instructors, including Mike Fodera 5d, Shawn Ray (Clossius) 4d, Dwyrin 4d, and Milan Mladenovic, and posted on YouTube. The 8th season had close to 50 participants, “so you’re sure to get in some good games.,” say organizers.

The MGF is also offering an 8-week beginner class, working mostly on the 9×9 board, and a 1-hour introductory workshop.

The main goals of the MGF are to integrate go into the school system, and to create an engaging and interesting environment for existing players. Learn more on their websiteFacebookMeetupYouTube, or Patreon.
