由美国围棋协会与大道美亚文化交流协会联合主办的“大道杯南加州围棋锦标赛”,经过2月8日9日两天的鏖战,已经尘埃落定。本次比赛共有将近60位棋手参加,最远的有来自亚利桑那州的棋手,还要相当数量的棋手来自北加州。在实力最强的公开组角逐中,上届冠军业余9段Evan Cho经过五轮比赛再次击败强敌卫冕成功,并由此得以晋级,将在未来的比赛中进一步角逐2014年度美国职业棋手的桂冠。Evan Cho是来自韩国的棋手,来美之前曾是韩国棋院的院生,现在在洛杉矶与同属韩国棋院的金明完9段共同开设围棋学校。
比赛期间,来自大陆湖北省武汉的职业7段王海钧、美国2013年度新科职业棋手孙志远(Calvin Sun)、来自湾区的前中国职业棋手林雪芬(Shirley Lin)等几位老师无偿地前来助阵,以自身直接的投入诠释着职业棋手对围棋的热爱。其中王老师与小孙老师还利用比赛的空余时间与爱好者进行了多面打,这也是众多爱好者一直望眼欲穿的快举。8名幸运的爱好者经过抽签在众多申请人当中得到了宝贵的学习机会。最后,两位老师不仅一丝不苟地下完了所有的指导棋,还在对局结束后耐心地为各位爱好者继续了复盘讲解。他们的棋艺和他们的人品一样,一再地赢得了爱好者们的好评。
在本次大赛资助者、大陆移民郑经卫先生的致词声中,本次比赛圆满地结束了。但是大家在闭幕式上共同约定2015重新聚首,也希望郑经卫先生与他的大道美亚文化交流协会能够继续慷慨地资助此一赛事。
