FEW SUPRISES AFTER 1ST 2 WAGC ROUNDS: While most of the top seeds at the World Amateur Go Championships are winning, as expected, in the early rounds, there were several notable upsets in Tuesday’s first two rounds. Fifth-ranked Tsung-Lin Yang of Chinese Taipei fell to 29th-seeded Ruechagorn Trairatananusorn of Thailand in Round 2 and Antonio Fernandez Caballero of Cuba, seeded 32nd, narrowly defeated 7th-seeded Frank Janssen of The Netherlands by 5.5 points in Round 2. In a third major upset, 26th-ranked Martin Xiangdong Li of Sweden defeated 17th-seeded Pal Balogh of Hungary (who used just 10 minutes of his time) in Round 1.
