The Seattle Go Center has announced the "Seattle Top Go Player’s Tournament", which will start on Sunday, Feb. 3.

This is a round robin tournament for players 4 dan and stronger, which will meet on the same days as our Monthly Ratings Tournament. All games will start with an empty board -- we will use komi and reverse komi to adjust for differences in strength. There are three cash prizes and a trophy. The fee is $50 for the tournament, which will probably take 3 Sundays to finish. Players who are not voting members of the Go Center will also need to pay an additional $3.50 a visit. Tournament Director will be Kyoung-Sun Cho (Sonny Cho).

This kind of tournament is very popular in Korea, and the Korean name for our tournament is 시애틀 바둑 최강자전 . This tournament is not AGA – rated, so players do not have to be AGA members. However, if two AGA members play each other, they can submit the game to the AGA as a self-paired game, if they want.

Seattle has "A" and "C" teams in the AGA Pandanet City League. Many of the same individuals will be playing face to face in the Top Go Players tournament.
