Myungwan Kim, 9-dan pro from Korea, is visiting Seattle through December 6. (Then he's going to Portland for a few days, before returning to Korea.) While he's here, he's agreed to play simuls twice, and give a couple of lectures, including a presentation on his invention "Connect Go".

Sat. 2019-11-30 - 3:00pm-5:00pm - Connect Go presentation.

(It is not "First Capture / Atari Go".) Benefits for impacted individuals include improved social skills, increased attention span, etc.
