On May 4th, the Santa Fe Go Club held its first AGA rated tournament in several years. A mixed crowd and some interested watchers attended the Spring Go Tournament with a record 14 players from Santa Fe, Los Alamos and Albuquerque, NM.

As an experiment for the Santa Fe Go Club, the first round was paired as usual, followed by as many self-paired games that could be fitted in. The tournament was held at a private home with outdoor areas that were much enjoyed for game reviews in the beautiful, early, spring weather.

Billy Maier won first place with Mario Espinoza a close second and Jonathan Zingale coming in third. Prizes were awarded to everyone. Robert Cordingley as the tournament director, ran the GoClubsOnLine software (goclubs.org) to pair, record games and determine winners. Many thanks go to Steve Uhl and Lew Geer for donating prizes and our additional sponsor, photographer and host Nancy Dahl.
