This was the third North Carolina Guo Juan Workshop, and like previous events, everyone had fun and learned more about this fascinating game. The location was changed this year to the Brier Creek Country Club, where we enjoyed fine food, comfortable surroundings and superb professional instruction. Sixteen go players benefitted from Guo Juan's teaching, laughed often, and came away from the weekend with stronger skills and the desire to play more Go.
In addition to lectures and game reviews, Guo Juan also continued the tradition of Survivor Go. In survivor Go, the participants are split into two teams, and each member takes a turn making a move on the demo board. Guo Juan judges each move based on the individual skill level of the player, and if the move is bad, that player is eliminated from the game. As always, fun and education in a stimulating package.
Our teacher also played a simul game with all of the participants, managing to devastate almost everyone at the same time. Following are more pictures from this event. Additional pictures appear on the page linked below.
