Tuesday April 26, 2022

The Evanston Go Club’s largest tournament yet, the 2022 Chicago Open, is set for Saturday, May 14. “With three divisions, cash prizes, medals, live streaming, donuts and a day filled with enjoyable go-goodness, there will be something here for everyone to appreciate,” say organizers. 

The tournament, which will be held at the Immanuel Lutheran Church in Evanston, “will be a big upgrade from our previous biennial tournaments,” writes Albert Yen 8-Dan. “Our event will include the familiar Chicago-style handicap divisions and a free beginner section, as well as a new Open championship for high-Dan players.”

The top boards will be broadcast on the AGA Twitch channel.
