PRO WORKSHOP A BIG HIT IN NORCAL: “We’re going to emphasize the ‘work’ in workshop,” Janice Kim 3P proclaimed at the start of her October 10-11 workshop with professional go players Seung-jun Kim 9P and Diana Koszegi 1P. Kim proceeded to hand out packets of problems specifically geared to each student’s individual level, and students spent time in class and at home solving go problems that were then graded by the pros. Seung-jun Kim and Diana Koszegi traveled from Korea for thre workshop, which was attended by twenty eight students, who participated in lectures, game reviews, team matches, simultaneous play, as well as go problems and homework. Seung-jun Kim and Diana Koszegi then headed to Las Vegas for some fun and games before continuing on to New York to teach another workshop. The Oakland workshop was co-sponsored by the Bay Area Go Players Association and the Oakland Asian Cultural Center.
