Last February 10th, the Mexican Go Association together with the Chess National School held their first Under 15 Youth Tournament. We had participants from Lancaster School, Chess National School and Pipiolo Art School accompanied by their respective teachers: Emil García, Iván Olguin and Siddhartha Ávila. It was a great event were the children got the chance to play with kids from different schools, backgrounds and styles. The event was mainly dominated by the students from Pipiolo school which also belong to the Mexican Go Community and have more experience competing. The surprise was given by Chess School student Angel Calvo, whom with little experience finished second. “This is the first of many steps to come in the road of linking the different sectors that are promoting youth Go in Mexico”, Mexican Go Association organizer and teacher Emil García reports.
