We are happy to publish here the 2015-Q1 edition ! You will find a biting editorial, some news of the latests events (not including the Dublin Confucius Cup which will be covered in the next Newsletter), a technical note on how to organize a go event and some games comments.

Of course to make it more and more complete, feel free to contribute in any way, the easiest one being probably to review one of the last game you found interesting and to send it to be published in the newsletter.

To read it, it’s here : IGA Newsletter, Q1 – 2015

Enjoy !
