2008 Orlando Go Tournament

Hey everyone!! The 2008 Orlando Go Tournament is officially 6 months away so i thought i might as well open up a blog for it early. Few details are as yet confirmed but a few things we do have:

  • 2-day long tournament May 3rd and 4th, Saturday and Sunday
  • $20 registration fee; $15 if you register early (covers both days)
  • Must be an AGA member to participate
  • Coffee & bagels provided both days included in registration fee
  • Large room (far bigger than 2007 tournament) capable of holding 60 players w/no loud singing next door 🙂
  • Using new PyTD version 2.0 software
  • 4 Divisions: Dan Division, Lower Kyu, Middle Kyu, Upper Kyu divisions
  • “AccelRat” Pairings will be used
  • (go to for more details)
  • 5 round tournament over two days
  • 45 minute main time 5/30 byo-yomi Japanese time
  • Hotel room reserved, call (407)-282-2777, Days Inn, tell them its for the Go Tournament, must reserve by April 14th
  • Prizes in all divisions!!!

Next time I post will probably me in January after the holidays. If you live in the Orlando area and would like to help me set up the tournament I would be very thankful, so please email me at if you have any interest in helping out.In other news, Go Orlando is doing very well, we now have 5 players 1 dan or stronger including myself. We also have 7 players in the kyu ranges whom I know will all get stronger in the coming months before the tournament. I believe I just made it to 2d AGA (yay) although I’m still 1d KGS. Unlike in 2007, Go Orlando will have a strong representation at the tournament 🙂
