Here is the link for the english language results table for the World Amateur Go Championships (WAGC) currently being held in Japan.
After 6 rounds we are finally reduced to one clear leader on 6 wins, and 5 hot on his tail at 5 wins from 6 games. 2 games remaining to find a champion.
Round 7 being played currently, with some of the top boards being broadcast on IGS (PandaNet)
At the conclusion of Round 7, Yi-Tien Chan of TAIPEI has secured first place as he is beyond catching in the final round. Even a loss will see him win on tie breakers, so congratulations are in order.
The rest of the podium is still up for grabs, however, and pictured is everyone who has won at least 5 games in the first seven rounds!
Let’s see how everything settles in the final round, due to being in just shy of 30 minutes <3
As always, tune into IGS to check out some of the top boards!
