Go Lecture: Park Jungwhan – An Impressive Game versus Rui Naiwei

Park Jungwhan is a name many players know.  He's a very strong Korean professional who has battled it out on domestic and international stages.  You've no doubt seen him play other top players such as Lee Changho, Kong Jie, and many others.  Rui Naiwei, on the other hand is sadly often overlooked but no less [...]

Go Lecture: Choi Cheolhan – Uses Attachments!

Attaching to your opponent's stones is one of those things that new players hear is a bad thing.  The number of times I've had students say to me that attachments were bad for that very reason is astounding!  Truth is attachments are one of the most powerful tools in your arsenal!  In fact I would [...]

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: Bonus Lecture – Aji, Don’t Leave Home Without It.

It's no secret that I teach a lot of go, both publicly and privately.  I do it practically every day.  No days off for a go teacher.  That said, how many times have I brought one of my students games online to share with everyone?  Not often, huh?  This game demanded that i review it for [...]

Go Lecture: Rare Moves – Lecture

If you've been paying attention to my lectures then you know that I love concentrating on 'normal' styles of play.  My mission, if you will, is to help everyone identify what is normal about normal play and what it is considered normal.  However, not everyone studies the same thing we do.  I know, I know. [...]

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 [...]

Gu Li – Plays Micro Chinese Fuseki

The Micro Chinese Fuseki is one I wasn't sure about when it first began making its rounds in the go world. It struck me as a little over concentrated around that 3-4 stone. Well, turns out I was wrong about that and it is here to stay. Fine. That means we [...]

Use of Attachments!

At first glance the very idea of attaching seems to violate proverbs about touching your opponents stones. That's not exactly true. Normally new players are told this to stop them from randomly attaching to everyone stone that's played. without confusing them. The truth is attachments can be used for either offence of defense [...]

Crazy Moves

Let's take a look at something completely different. Instead of examining proper openings and joseki, I use amateur games explore why crazy moves are crazy moves, and how to handle them.

This is one of my earliest lectures ever recorded. Recording Quality may be lacking as a result.
