If you know the rules of goe and are comfortable playing on a 19x19 board, then you are ready to play in a tournament. Come join us in downtown Berkeley on Saturday, October 13 at the Bay Area Go Players Association monthly tournament. The event is sanctioned by the American Go Association, and you will get an official US go rating if you don't already have one. Usually 20-30 people of all different levels come out to play in the monthly tournaments, and we also often have a teacher on hand for newer players. You can get more information about the tournament and sign up at http://www.bayareago.org. Only one tournament is held in Berkeley each year (other months are in Palo Alto or San Francisco) so if you live in the East Bay, you should really try to make it out to this one.
