Canadian Open 2016

I ended up with a 4-2 record (playing as 2d) in the Canadian Open! I really love the Canadian Open. There are lots of good people and lots of strong players. I always feel like part of their family by the time I leave. I also met the designer of the best Go logo ever.

I was particularly happy with my result given my inauspicious start to the trip. I left Boston on June 30, with a flight scheduled for 2:45 pm -- plenty of time to arrive and settle in before Pair Go on Canada Day (July 1). I arrived at Logan airport early, since they warned of long lines and delays, but zipped right through security and waited patiently for my flight. We boarded the plane on time. Then they announced that something wasn't quite right and they needed to shut down the plane and turn it back on. (That's right -- their solution is the same as for any other electronic device: reboot.) Then we did it again. And again. After two hours, they cancelled our flight entirely and had us all get off the plane. We waited in long, slow lines to reschedule our travel. When I finally got to the counter, the guy told me I should just give up and fly tomorrow, but I could wait on standby if I wanted. I figured I'd give standby a try, so I went back to the waiting area. Eventually they announced that they had brought a new part and our flight was reinstated, departing at 9:30 pm. We get back on the plane and taxi out toward the runway. Then they tell us they need to reboot again. I start singing to myself, "gotta know when to fold 'em..." But we eventually got off the ground around 10:45 pm. By the time I arrived in Toronto, my rental car company has closed for the night. I gave up on renting and took a cab to my hotel, getting in around 1:30 am.

So I skipped the first round of Pair Go and slept in, abandoning Pete, who drove up a day early to play with me. He left the Pair Go tournament before I got there, so I played with a local player for the latter 2 rounds. We won one game and lost one. Not bad, under the circumstances.

On day 1 of the main tournament, I went 1-2, winning my middle game of the day.

In Round 1, I played black against William Guo, 1D:
I got to play the Yunguseng move in my first game! This was also the start of the lessons I received in the weaknesses of this way of playing... I lost by resignation.

(I had a feeling this is what I should do, but I was afraid I had too many weaknesses.)]))

In Round 2, I played white against Bob Campbell 2D:
He's such a nice guy! He does this sweet thing where you play and he'll shake his head in amazement, saying, "that's a really nice move." He managed to get some large territories, but we fought this ko fight and I played a ko threat, not even realizing quite what the move did. We both realized at the same time that he was in bigger trouble. I took some stones, which ate into his big territory on the bottom, and he resigned.

I didn't have any access to caffeine, so the afternoon was rough. In Round 3, I played white against Liam Hinzman, 3D.

I lost this game. This one was reviewed by a Korean pro, Dongeun Choi 1P.

The next day, GJ, Darrell and I decided to walk from the hotel to the tournament. We left around 9:20/9:30, with plenty of time to arrive for the first round at 10 am. As we walked in the building, we checked the clock: 9:50, good timing. Walking through the corridor into the tournament room, we see a few people playing casual games. Upon seeing us, they jumped up, telling us the first round had started at 9! We had no idea. They had generously waited a long time before starting our clocks, so we still had 1/2 hour open time (normal is 1 hour). In spite of being down on time, Darrell and I both won our first round games. I played black against Nick Prince, 2D and got to play my Yunguseng move again! (Different version this time.)

In Round 5, I played Darrell! He played as 1k in the tournament and won the kyu division! Guo Juan said he now has to play 1d at the US Open. Here we are dressed as Vikings (accessories courtesy of some professional Viking reenactors who were heading to a ship festival as part of some Canada Day celebrations).

For my last round, Round 6, I played Andrew Olders, 3d:
He was in the same club as Nick Prince and they had talked a bit about my Yunguseng move, but Andrew let me play it again anyway. I won this game to end with a 4-2 record overall, winning a handshake from James Sedgewick.
