University of Maryland wins the CGL Season Four Championships!

On Sunday April 25, 2015, University of Maryland won the CGL Season Four Championships! All three boards were very closely contested. An hour and a half into the championship match, UCLA had won board 2 and UMD had won board 3. The game came down to a nailbitingly close board 1 game in which several groups came magically back alive on both sides.

 

Gansheng Shi 1p broadcast a live review of the board 1 game on KGS. If you missed it, you can find the review below!

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.
