The ‘TrueVisions—The Mall Go International Championship 2013’ will take place at The Mall Ngam Wong Wan this weekend.

Those with a passion for the Go board game are invited to an international tournament entitled "TrueVisions _ The Mall Go International Championship 2013" which will take place in the MCC Hall, 4th floor of The Mall Ngam Wong Wan, this weekend, starting at 9am.

Organised in collaboration with Happy Genius, the Go Association of Thailand and the Sports Authority of Thailand, the 7th edition will see 600 young participants vying for a trophy from HRH Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn, plus scholarships worth 100,000 baht. It is a truly global event with competitors coming from such places as China, Japan, South Korea, Singapore, Malaysia and of course Thailand.

The tournament is divided into three categories _ Friendship (three players per team), Kyu (individual) and Dan (individual). It also uses the Swiss system, in which there are no eliminations.

Go is a game of strategy conceived in China between 3,000 and 4,000 years ago. It is called weiqi in China, igo in Japan, and baduk in Korea. It's said to help promote the 4Qs in players _ intelligence quotient (IQ), emotional quotient (EQ), moral quotient (MQ) and adversity quotient (AQ).
