Connecticut State Go Championship 2022

We are holding the 2022 Connecticut State Go Championship on May 21st, 2022, at the Battle Standard, 4 Prospect Hill Road, East Windsor, CT.

Registration is limited to the first 32 paid players; additional registrants will be placed on a waiting list, unless we can scare up some more table space.

This will be 4 rounds, with registration starting at 9 am, first round at 10am, finishing about 6:30 pm.

The time limits will be Fischer time, perhaps 20 minutes of basic time and a 15 second increment, usually resulting in complete games taking about 90 minutes. We will use the AGA rules, including pass stones.

There will be two divisions, both requiring AGA membership:

  1. The CT Open, even games, 2 Dan AGA and above, $25 entry fee, with a $150 first prize.

  2. The CT Handicap, open to anyone 1 Dan and below, with a $15 entry fee (or $5 for students).

The divisions may play each other near the 2D/1D boundary, but all games involving a CT open player will be even games, and only CT Open players can win CT Open prizes.

This in an AGA sanctioned event.

There will also be self-paired 9x9 and 13x13 tournaments, with prizes.

Breakfast bagels, orange juice and snacks (a complimentary breakfast) will be provided.

Evidence of Covid-19 vaccination required on entry. At this time, masks are not required, but we will abide by the health regulations of the town of East Windsor as in effect at the date of the tournament.
