In the orphanage in Primorye, a New Year blitz lesson on the game of Go was held. A charity event and a master class were prepared by athletes and employees of the Polymetal gold mining company, which has been supporting and developing the Go game in Russia for many years.

Polymetal has a New Year’s campaign “Mandarin”, during which the company’s employees themselves purchase gifts for children from orphanage No. 2 and bring them on New Year's Eve. This year, they joined forces with the Go players, presented gifts to 48 children from one to 17 years of age, and also held a Go workshop for 30 older children. Guo’s sets were presented to the orphanage, as well as textbooks and booklets, on which you can further hone your skills in this game.

In 2020, the world championship in Go will be held in Vladivostok. It will be held from May 28 to June 4 on Russky Island on the FEFU campus. According to the press service of the Go regional federation, Polymetal is a partner in all events of the championship.

“In chess, all pieces are different, but in Go, every stone has equal value for the final result. In chess, having made an unsuccessful move, any piece, except for pawns, can be returned to its previous position, and in Go - the stone that appears on the board can no longer be moved, only removed in case of death. And finally, chess is a game to destroy the enemy, where the ultimate goal is to surrender, and Go is aimed at capturing territory on the board. These three points are of great importance to me personally, not only when I play, but also when I think about various business and life circumstances, ”said Vitaliy Nesis, Chief Executive Officer of Polymetal.
