Go Takes Over Seoul Streets

AGA news - Sun, 21/09/2014 - 12:36

Hundreds of people gathered to play Go in Korea’s Gwanghwamun Square, on September 21. The event was part of Seoul’s Street Without Cars Festival and Learn Go Week. Go fans got autographs from players like Lee ChanghoLee Sedol and Kim Hyojeong, president of the Korean Baduk Professionals’ Union. One hundred professional go players played simultaneous games with attendees, including international visitors from the 51 countries participating in the 9th Korean Prime Minister’s Cup. Over 1,000 people attended, including many families with children. However, because not everyone played games, the goal of 1,004 simultaneous games was not achieved, and the Guinness World Record – 1,000 players at Take-machi-dohri and Chuo-cho Shopping Streets, Oita, Japan on June 6, 1999 — remained unbroken this year.

Korea’s Wei TaeWoong Sweeps Korean World Amateur Championship, Besting U.S. in Final

AGA news - Sat, 20/09/2014 - 14:37

Korea’s Wei TaeWoong (right) swept the 9th Korean World Amateur Championships (KPMC), winning all six games on September 19-20 in Seoul. US representative Ben Lockhart scored an impressive 5-1 record, losing only to Wei in the final round (photo). China came in second, followed by Taiwan, Japan, the US, Mexico and Russia. The key game was Wei’s fifth-round match against Hu YuChing from China; Hu led slightly from the beginning, but Wei hung in and succeeded in turning the game around. “I am very happy to win the KPMC,” said Wei, “and I will prepare with my best for next year’s pro qualification tournaments.”

Your Move/Readers Write: Going With The Flow

AGA news - Thu, 18/09/2014 - 21:36

“You mention that you’re looking for a January 2002 article about go by Katy Kramer (Go Spotting: Northeastern University Magazine 6/7 EJ),” writes Harald Zellerer. “I really liked that article also and republished it on the website of the Amsterdam Go Club.” Click here to read “Go: With the Flow.”

Bob Joyce also sent us a copy of the article, noting that “featured is Sangit Chatterjee, who authored Cosmic Go, Galactic Go, and provided game commentaries for the book Go! More Than a Game by Peter Shotwell.  He describes the game’s complexity as ‘Go is like six chessboards joined together, with all six games happening at the same time.’” Joyce extended special thanks to Joan Lynch, Managing Editor, Marketing and Communications, Northeastern University,who provided a copy of the article.
Editor’s Note: This terrific article would make an excellent handout for local clubs to beginners or at public events.
