More than 70 players gathered at the San Francisco Go Club earlier this month for the North American Ing Go Cup. Demonstrating their exceptional skill and strategy, Rui Naiwei and Duan Ninghan shared first place in the Open section, while Jeremy Chiu claimed third place.
‘Integral to the event’s success was the generous sponsorship of the Ing Foundation, whose support was instrumental in bringing this vibrant gathering to life,’ reports the SFGC. ‘Their contribution not only facilitated the tournament but also reinforced the spirit of the Go community.’ The 7 January tournament, divided into various sections including an open section and a handicap section, saw players of all levels vying for top honours. ‘The presence of 9-dan professional players Jiang Zhujiu and Rui Naiwei elevated the event, infusing it with their profound expertise and inspiring the participants,’ added the SFGC.
