Mientras la Liga Latinoamericana de Go por Equipos en Pandanet (PGLATC) pasa por la mitad de la temporada, la Federación Iberoamericana de Go (FIG) designó a la Asociación Mexicana de Go (AMGO) como la anfitriona del Campeonato Iberoamericano de Go (CIG) de este año, el cual se realizará del 13 al 15 de octubre.

“Dado que este año el país anfitrión del CIG también deberá ser anfitrión de la final del PGLATC, se nos ocurrió la idea de organizar un evento más grande que englobe estos 2 eventos aunado a algunas actividades adicionales para los asistentes, así es como tuvimos la idea de organizar el 1er Congreso Latinoamericano de Go” reporta Emil García, presidente de la AMGO.

Con 4 rondas faltantes en el PGLATC, Mexico encabeza la tabla con un marcador perfecto de 5-0, con Argentina y Colombia pisándole los talones con un record de 4-1. Las rondas finales probarán ser todo un reto considerando que los 2 mejores países al final de la liga viajarán a Mexico patrocinados por Pandanet para jugar una final sobre el tablero para clamar este título.

La 5ta ronda esta programada para el domingo 26 de marzo a las 19 hrs. UTC-6, síganla en GoPanda2 en la sala LatinAmericaTeamChamp. Revisen los pareos de la ronda en el sitio de la Liga Latinoamericana de Pandanet.
