Self-Paired Tourney Off to Slow Start

Just 80 games have been played so far in the Self-Paired Tournament at this week’s US Go Congress, considerably off the event’s usual blazing pace of hundreds of games a day. Part of the challenge is likely the wealth of other opportunities, like pro simuls and lectures, but another reason may have been a delay in the reporting system. That’s now in process and we’ll post updates as results become available. Anyone interested in playing in the Self-Paired Tournament will find results slips — and the box to turn them in — at the table just outside the main playing room. Any game can be part of the Self-Paired if the opponents agree. Games entered into the Self-Paired Tournament are AGA-rated and players are eligible for prizes in a number of categories, including most wins by a kyu player over a dan player, most dan player wins over a kyu player, most-improved and so on.– report by Karoline Li; photo by Chris Garlock
