Go Lecture: Huge Territories!

A game starts out much like any other. Soon we see both players strive to surround absolutely enormous areas of the board, but will their opponents allow them to hold onto it? Find out in this crazy game where we witness ambition on a huge scale!

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: Ke Jie – Plays Simply

By now it's no secret that I love following Ke Jie's career.  It's not often that a player comes around  that you know is going to be on top of the go world one day.  It's not every day you can see their rise to power.

In this game, Ke Jie goes up against the Mini [...]

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: Lee Sedol – An Old Game

We all know that Lee Sedol sits proudly on top of the Korean go world. But do you remember when he was just a 3dan? Seems almost inconceivable, doesn't it?  But he was, an for quite awhile, too.

I began studying Lee Sedol's gameplay when he was still a 3dan.  Memorizing, in fact.   To this day [...]

Go Lecture: Park Jungwhan – Takes on Tengen!

I shouldn't have to tell anyone how much I dislike tengen.  The mere sight of it causes me to sigh.  When professionals use it, that's another story.  I respect anyone willing to use this rather risky opening in a professional setting.  After all, those games aren't just for fun or to troll.  Those games typically [...]

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 [...]

Twin Games of Reduction

There are two games reviewed in this lecture.  In the first one, Choi Cheolhan has a pretty easy time tackling the Micro Chinese Fuseki due to rather common joseki being played out.  Immediately making this game one to look at for some nice easy sequences when using or playing against this fuseki.  If another reason [...]

Honest Go – Lecture

Honest go is means play where nothing is hidden.  That the meaning behind their moves is nice and upfront, on display for everyone to see.  These sorts of games are among the best for us to learn from since there's not a lot of useless complication hiding the bigger points of the game.  They are [...]
