Seth Cardew 2D Upset Champion at Triangle Memorial Tourney in North Carolina

AGA news - Tue, 23/09/2014 - 00:13

A glorious fall day at the Umstead State Park in Cary, North Carolina welcomed the 14th annual Triangle Memorial Go Tournament on September 20. Despite the tranquil surroundings, mental chaos reigned under the picnic shelter as 34 contestants from four states battled through four rounds. The early prediction for a final repeating last year’s showdown between the two 7-dan prior champions, but all expectations changed when the top three players all fell in the first round. Ultimately Seth Cardew (at right, in white shirt) of Tennessee, entered as 2-dan, emerged as the Open champion with a perfect score of 4-0, defeating both 7-dans in the process, including an astonishing kill against many-time champion Changlong Wu in the final round (right), taking just two stones, which secured the $500 top prize. Second place went to Liqun Liu 7D at 3-1.

Other prize winners were Justin Blank at 4-0 followed by Anthony Long, both 4k, in Group A, Alvin Chen 10k scoring 4-0 in Group B, and Dale Blann 14k sweeping section C at 4-0 with Ellen Zeng at 3-1. Following long tradition, all entry fees were returned to the players in prizes, augmented by a gift from the sponsoring Triangle Go Group, and all players were treated to lunch and snacks throughout. The tournament was directed by AGA membership coordinator Charles Alden (left), with logistical assistance from Bob Bacon, Paul Celmer and Adam Bridges.

Peter Nelson Wins Seattle Pandanet Team Qualifier

AGA news - Mon, 22/09/2014 - 20:29

Peter Nelson, a recent arrival to Seattle from Minnesota, was selected for the Seattle 1 Pandanet-AGA  City League Team, after winning the Qualifier Tournament at the Seattle Go Center by a narrow margin.  Longtime Northwest player Edward Kim placed second at the tournament, with the same win/loss record, and will also join the team.  Returning first team members are Simon (Ximeng) Yu, and Ho Son.  The Seattle Pandanet-AGA team placed second last August in the A League competition, losing to the team from neighboring Vancouver B.C.  The board order for the teams in the  online tournament is determined by AGA ratings, so Nelson will probably have the alternate position.  Nelson had an AGA rating of 3 dan last month, and has a 4 dan rating at present.  However, he won two even games against a 7 dan at the tournament, plus a game against Xiaowu Li, who is a 5 dan in China, so observers expect his rating to continue to improve.

The open tournament was a challenge to both players and Tournament Directors Sonny Cho and Dennis Wheeler.  Due to “circular wins” four players had identical records after four rounds, necessitating a playoff round.  The tournament lasted 9 hours and some players had five games.  In addition to Peter Nelson and Edward Kim, Dong Baek Kim and Xiaowu Li were finalists.  This was the first Seattle event for Xiaowu Li, a Visiting Scholar at the University of Washington Law School, and former director of the faculty go club at Tsinghua University, Beijing, China.  Photo: Simon (Ximeng) Yu watches the game of Peter Nelson and Xiaowu Li.  Report/photo by Brian Allen
