Wax and Murg Win in the West

westSeth Wax 5d and Aaron Murg 15k won the West American Student Go Championship, held Sept. 27th at the University of California Riverside. Twelve college students competed, in dan and kyu sections. After three intense rounds of playing, Wax, a student at UC Irvine, topped the dan division with a 2-1 score. Murg, from San Diego, won the kyu division with the same record. “It was surprising to see people coming from places so far away to participate in this tournament,” said organizer Yunxuan Li. “Most of the participants came from Santa Monica, and San Diego. Everyone had a lot of fun communicating through go and we want to continue this tournament next year.” – Paul Barchilon, E-J Youth Editor.
