Argentine Go Association

    Keywords: Clubs & Places

Asociación Argentina del Juego de Go (AAGo), the Argentine (or Argentinian [1]) Go Association, was founded in September 1971. [2]

The association:

  • promotes the game of go in Argentina
  • organizes tournaments, congresses and courses
  • maintains the national rating system
  • selects representatives to international tournaments
  • acts as a central organizer of activities among the different go clubs in Argentina
  • coordinates activities and communications with other National and International Go Associations

As of November 2021, there are more than 100 members of the AAGo, and there are 21 [ext] go clubs recognized by AAGo in different parts of Argentina.

The AAGo affiliated to the International Go Federation on the IGF's creation in 1982.

The AAGo hosted the 3rd (2001) and 10th (2008) Torneo Iberoamericano (Iberoamerican Tournament).

In October 2020 the AAGo hosted the first Online Latin American Go Congress with over 300 participants including players from North America, Europe and Asia.

In November 2021, the final round of the [ext] Argentine Series of the 1st Latin American Circuit of Weiqi Championships was held in Buenos Aires, being a major Go event in the region and the first official on-site Tournament since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. It involved 51 players from six cities throughout the country, and was held under the sponsorship of the [ext] Chinese Weiqi Association.

AAGo has its own [ext] National Rating System, called Rango, which is directly based on AGA's published rating system. As of November 2021 there are 70 ranked active players, and 151 ranked players in total when including inactive players.

AAGo is in charge of "Sala Argentina", the Argentine Room in the KGS server
