July 13th Albert Yen (r) simul

The Evanston Go Club is holding an online fundraiser simul event on OGS with Albert Yen 8d on Saturday, October 15. Yen is the winner of the 2022 Midwest Open and Chicago Open.

The event on the 15th will include two sessions of 3-person simuls, at 1 pm and 2:30 pm Central Time; each session will last 90 minutes, which includes time for a post-game review. 

“Our previous simul event filled up quickly, and we had to turn people down,” says Mark Rubenstein, president of the Evanston Go Club. “The simul is a great event to bring players together and a unique opportunity to interact with top players like Albert. The proceeds will help us offer bigger and better tournaments for the whole go community.”

“This time, since we are holding the event online, we will broadcast the whole event for people to enjoy at home,” says Yen. “Jeremiah Donley 6d, 2022 US Masters player and popular instructor for the Columbus Go Club, will be giving live commentary on the AGA stream.”

Players who are interested in playing Albert can secure their slot by contacting him at A donation of $30 to the Evanston Go Club is requested. All proceeds go towards special prizes, equipment, and professional commentary/review for tournaments hosted by the club.
