    This year, the National Go Center is hosting the U.S. Go Congress, the biggest event in American Go. Featuring the U.S. Open, a six-day, six-round tournament with generous time settings (90 minutes per side), there's no better way to make friends, learn about go, and get stronger.

    It will take place this year on the campus of William and Mary, in Williamsburg, VA, directly next to Colonial Williamsburg.
