UCLA triumphed this past Saturday in the CGL Season Five Championships, defeating U Toronto to claim first place! They take home $250 to spend on their club. UCLA was unable to overcome Toronto's first board, Ryan Li 1p, but their second and third boards won the day. Cornell University takes 3rd place.
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!
First - Congratulations for UMD and UCLA for defeating their opponents this past Saturday!
Kim Myungwan, Korean 9d professional, dropped by Harvard and MIT's Go clubs this past weekend to scout out the collegiate Go scene. He gave a short review of a game between Evan Cho, a former Korean insei, and Ryan Li, recently minted 1d American professional. During his review, he applied general principles of Go to make comments on the players' moves.
On 2014/11/15, UCLA played their inaugural match against last year's CGL championship runner-up, University of Michigan.
UCLA's team captain kindly took the time to give us a quick game review of the three games, of which they won the second and third boards to win their first match in the CGL!
