ImageAll participants in the AGA TygemGo Online Pro Qualifier will receive a pin commemorating this first-ever Pro Qualifier competition. ”The design is pretty neat,” said President Allan Abramson. “Thanks to the Pro Committee for the idea, and the design.” Register here “and be sure to practice on Tygem for the June Qualifier!” adds Abramson. The pro qualifier is the American Go Association’s pioneering effort to establish AGA pros in the international scene, supported by the Korea Baduk Association and Tygem. “Our joint view is a long one, creating the pros and opportunities for international competition and training, which will ultimately improve all US players,” says AGA President Allan Abramson. “The goal is people who will be able to win internationally, in major tournaments. This may take years to achieve, but 2012 is the beginning.”

The online prelim is open to all US and Canadian citizens, regardless of rank, and the AGA and Tygem want everyone to play.

Anyone have the game record from the demo game that was supposed to have been played between Andy Liu and Calvin Sun? Did it happen?

I think it was postponed to follow the extension of the registration deadline.

The exhibition game was indeed played today, however I'm not aware if it was recorded or not.

I was on KGS this this afternoon (I guess it was yesterday, now), when someone announced in various rooms, including the EGR that Andy had won the match.

I suspect the commented game will either be posted on the AGA site or sent out in member's versions of the EJournal very soon.
