Cynthia Gaty (TD) along with the Willamette and Corvallis Go Clubs are
putting on another AGA rated Go tournament ... one day, three rounds of
handicap Go. Information below.
I've been tagged to do the pairings, and have decided to go retro this
time, doing the match-ups by hand (instead of noodling with software).
I will aim to match similar won-loss records together, with the
additional constraint that the strongest (and weakest) player matches up
to the players closest to them in strength (minimizing the handicaps
that they will deal with). If I have enough of a pool, I will also
attempt to *not* match players from the same club, if possible (but
sometimes there is just nothing that can be done about that).
So ... join on in! So far there are 12 players preregistered, with
player strength running from 12K to 6D (distribution shown below). Just
email Cynthia at <cgaty at gmail.com> to preregister. Preregistration
closes on the Thursday before the tournament, at 6 pm, so I can get the
first round ready along with boards, stones, and clocks. Time to show
just how much those pro lessons have changed your game :))
