I just received the blessing of Ted Terpstra, the director of the 2017 Go Congress, to sponsor live Malkovich games between pros at Congress.

What I plan to do is have two lecture rooms side by side, each room having the usual setup of an audience in seats, and a pro with a magnetic board on an easel. The two pros will play a live game, taking questions from their respective audiences as they decide upon their moves. A moderator - probably me - will shuttle back and forth conveying moves.

I plan to have video recordings from each room, and to splice them together afterwards. ( There are some weird complications with audio/visual equipment at this hotel, so I can't guarantee this. )

There will be no fee for this. It will be free for all attendees. ( Although there will be a tip jar )

Any suggestions for particularly articulate pros will be appreciated.

Also, we may need interpreters.

Good idea - I like it.

If you have a game recorder in each room, you could simply convey the moves electronically instead of walking back and forth.

Probably doesn't make a big difference in any case, but just an idea.

Obviously Michael Redmond might be one of the ones articulate in English. Another idea is Haylee, though she has reverted to amateur status. Guo Juan is another idea. WHich pros are expected to attend?

I remember there was a demonstration game at a US Go Congress quite a few years ago, maybe the 10th in DC, between Michael Redmond, then 7p (?), and one of the CHinese pros in attendance. Michael won the game. A live commentary was given by Yilun Yang.

and if you plan on using EJournal game recorders and equipment, be sure to talk to them first (journal @ usgo dot org). Don't assume that its available for Congress staff to use. Depending on their schedule (which is already quite full), they also have the experience to help with the setup and room layout.

I remember when we used walkie-talkies. ;)
