In mid-June, the fourth season of the Pandanet Go Latin American Team Championship (PGLATC) ended with Argentina and Brazil finishing at the 1st and 2nd places, respectively, in the A Group of the League.
In the B Group, the debuting team from Cuba ended up on the 1st place, followed by Costa Rica on the 2nd. Both teams will be playing in the A Group in the next season. Meanwhile, Chile and Venezuela, who finished at the bottom of the A group, will be descending to the B group for next season.

The main surprise of the League was Peru, who finished on the 3rd place in the A Group, and their outstanding new 1st board player Aaron Alvarado, who won difficult games against Colombia’s, Mexico’s and Argentina’s 1st-board players.
Another surprise was the Dominican Republic player Pascual Núñez, who came in as a replacement on the 5th round of the League and, even though he registered as 10 kyu, managed to win all his games, even including a 3 kyu.
The venue for the final match between Argentina and Brazil for this 4th PGLATC was supposed to take place in Buenos Aires, Argentina during the 4th Latin American Go Congress in mid-October, but the Congress has been postponed until 2021 due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Most likely the final match will be played online, but further notice on this is still to come.
