Go Lecture: Looking at Direction of Play

In this Go Lecture we examine a much requested subject; Direction of Play. It's a bit of a quirky subject, more easily understood as being consistent. Obviously to do that one must understand what their previous moves were accomplishing or hoping to accomplish in the future, in order to see if something is [...]

Go Lecture: Lee Sedol vs High Chinese Fuseki

In our last Go Lecture we took a look at Lee Changho playing against the High Chinese Fuseki. This time it's Lee Sedol's turn to take a crack at the fuseki seeing as how this particular fuseki seems sticking around the go world longer than I would have expected.

Go Lecture: Kang Dongyun – Plays Influential Orthodox

Korean Professional Kang Dongyun Plays an influential orthodox style versus Chinese professional Lian Xiao in this game by opening with the large knight enclosure. A rather standard variation breaks out from there that takes on a seemingly small, but very important, difference from how we normally continue the game.

What was fascinating about this game [...]

Go Lecture: The Surrounding Game

Go has many names.  Some names more descriptive than others.  One name you may not be aware of is the 'Surrounding Game'.   It just makes sense on so many levels.  The goal of the game is to surround more territory than your opponent's.  If there is a weak group, a good tactic is to try [...]

Go Lecture: Ke Jie – His Dominance Continues!

Ke Jie continues to show us his strength by taking to task a professional 3dan. but not in the normal manner.  If you think it's going to be landslide from start to finish, you'd be wrong.  In fact I would have to say that black's opening in this match is pretty impressive.  Intimidating, even.  Ke [...]

Go Lecture: 9dan versus 1dan

At first glance you may think that watching a 9dan play a 1dan is akin to viewing a train wreck in progress. What you would be forgetting is that every 9dan begins off as a 1dan. And sometimes that 1dan can be every bit as powerful as a 9dan.  It's not at all like a [...]

Lee Sedol – Plays Kobayashi?

Ah, the good old Kobayashi Fuseki.  I used to play this thing all the time.  More often than the Chinese Fuseki, if you can believe that.  It's a stretch, I know.  Playing something more than the Chinese Fuseki?  Isn't that against the rules, or something?  Because everyone is playing Chinese Fuseki variations these days, so [...]

Iyama Yuuta – More Japanese Pro Action!

It's no secret that I focus on Chinese and Korean go players.  What can I say, I just love fighting games!  Unfortunately that does mean I tend to regrettably overlook good Japanese professional games that are well worth studying!  It's a habit I am slowly trying to fix.  This game between Japanese professionals Iyama Yuuta and [...]
