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 Palo Alto on Saturday, November 17 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. Free parking is easy to find, and the Caltrain station is a short walk away. This location is one block away from the fun part of University Avenue, so there are plenty of cafes and restaurants right near by.
