Mexico Plays Friendly Online Match with Japanese Go Exchange Society SIIG
On November 23rd, an eleven v. eleven players online team match took place on KGS between Mexico’s representative team and the ‘Sociedad Internacional de Intercambio de Go’, SIIG.
The SIIG is a Japanese-based society of retired women and men who like to share through go and that has traveled to many countries in the globe in past years with that purpose. In Latin America they’ve been in Argentina, Chile, Cuba, and Mexico. The last time they were in Mexico was in October 2015, and since then, five online go matches with Mexico have been played.
So far all 5 matches have been victories for the Japanese team, and although the result of this last match was a 6-5 victory for SIIG, this is perhaps the closest Mexico has ever come to the win.
You can visit SIIG website behind this link or join the ‘Sala SIIG de Japón’ room on KGS under Social to find many SIIG members to play a match with.
