CGL Season Four: By The Numbers

CGL: Season Four by the Numbers

This year's Season Four of the Collegiate Go League was one of our best yet! 

14

We had 14 schools compete this year. Next year, we're hoping for 20+ schools. Help us make that happen by joining the CGL! You only need 3 players each round to play.

72 - 39

Of the 111 games played by our teams this year, 72 games were won by White, and 39 games were won by Black. This is due to our reduced handicap scheme, in which black takes his appropriate number of handicap stones, minus one. The numbers show that this is a fair balance between giving the weaker player a legitimate chance at winning, but without discouraging the strongest players from participating in the CGL.

34, 25, 13

Of the approximately 70+ players who played this season (this is surely an undercount, because there are many games in our database for which the player's identity is unknown), 34 were dan level players; 25 were 1k-9k, and 13 were weaker than 10k. No matter how weak or strong you are, you're sure to find a good match.

14

We experimented with allowing schools to enter more than one team in the CGL. The University of Maryland took us up on our offer, and over the course of the season, at least 14 different players from University of Maryland competed on their club's behalf.
