Portland Go Tournament
Date: October 19 - October 20 Location: Albany 218 and 220
Albany 218 and 220
Come play five rounds of AGA-rated Go! This is a handicap tournament, so you can expect some exciting, close games no matter your rank.
Strong players (6D+ AGA) may opt instead for the open tournament – all even games, may the best player win!
(Note: we experimented with a seven-round tournament last year, but it caused trouble for people who had to drive several hours. I’d rather have more participants than more games.)
Prizes (merchandise, lessons, or cash) will be awarded for:
Top three places (open)
Top three dan players (handicap)
Top three single-digit kyu players (handicap)
Top three double-digit kyu players (handicap)
Top youth player (22 and under) (handicap)
Top female player (handicap)
Register at www.goclubs.org. If you entered all of your personal information last year, it should still be there; you may wish to update your rank.
Registration fee: $15 if you’ve preregistered by September 20, $25 otherwise, no registration fee for youth players (22 and under). All players must also either be AGA members (you can join at the tournament for $30, $10 for youths) or pay a one-tournament membership fee of $10. All fees are paid by cash or check on the day of the tournament.

There is a coffee shop (Maggie’s) open on campus; Fields Dining Room is open for lunch and dinner. Info on these establishments can be found here. Note that Maggie’s doesn’t open until noon on the weekend, so if you need an infusion of caffeine before your first round, bring something along.
