Jonathan Fisher 4D Wins Cocoa Go Tournament

Jonathan Fisher 4D topped a field of 18 at the 2015 Cocoa Go Tournament on October 18. The Space Coast Area Go Association hosted 2015.10.21_Cocoa Go Tournament-collageplayers from West Palm Beach, Sarasota, Orlando, and the local area which is near the Kennedy Space Center.  The top division included three 4 dan players while the lower kyu division included the three youngest players rated at 13K, 15K and 26K.
“Due to the generosity of Slate and Shell, Yellow Mountain Imports and our club President, George Lebovitz, there were prizes for all,” reports tournament director  Bart Lipofsky. Top winner Jonathan Fisher 4D, who swept all three of his games, took home the 24 inch oil canvas of go stones from Yellow Mountain Imports.  Aaron Otero 8K was also undefeated to take first place in the mid kyu division.  Heather Crawford 13K had 2 wins, 1 loss, for first place in the lower kyu division.
“It was very nice to see a family team like the Crawfords who also played last year,” said Lipofsky. Paul Wiegand, who directs the Orlando Go Tournament in April, very graciously supplied all the clocks from his club. Afterwards Lipofsky and his wife Judy hosted a pizza party at their home.
