Korean Go Game Server – Dwyrin’s 7D – 04 – Easy Game

Not all Go Games are hour long events. Sometimes they're just eleven minutes long! Just create as many weak groups as possible. Here is a perfect example on why its not our goal in Go to create as many weak groups as possible.

Go Games – Korean Server – 5Dans – 07!

This game was fairly tough. My opponent decided to declare his victory assuming that I wasn't able to take advantage of all of his weak groups. A very tough proposition. When your opponent is creating weak groups and trying to grow a large area, you know that you don't have a lot [...]

Go Games – Korean Server – 5Dans – 05!

Well, I have to say that this is a game that is very hard to learn from. Here we have black open in a manner which I've been seeing a lot lately; ignoring the 3-4 approach to approach a 4-4 stone instead. It's quite strange given more value is set on the 3-4 [...]

Go Games – Korean Server – 5Dans – 01!

Took a little bit but finally I've reached 5dan on this Korean server.  Unfortunately our first game took a very long time to obtain.  Not having losses seemed to have scared off quite a few opponents so that when someone did finally accept, I may not have been in the best frame of mind.  A [...]

Go Games – Korean Server – 4Dans – 06

Here is another 4dan game on Baduk tv's server.  If you watch my games regularly, you know that I try to keep things simple for both my own well being as well as that of the reviewers.  Unfortunately this game did not want to stay simple at all as my opponent's style seems to be [...]

Go Games – Korean Server – 4Dans – 05

Continuing on in my series against Korean 4dans...

Another game is played which I thought was rather normal of you can expect to see in an average game.  The opening wasn't too bad, though it could easily be argued that white played a bit too slowly.  He followed up with faster play in the form of quick [...]

Go Games – Korean Server – 4Dans – 03

Not much to say about this game, unfortunately.  Started out with what was probably a misclick on his part, and turned into a fighting game of splitting groups.  Sad, but it happens.  What's important here is not getting too overzealous due to his mistake, and still taking care as not to lose the lead we [...]

Go Games – Korean Server – 3Dans – 01

A New Server

This time I get to play a go game on a Korean Server.  Given that I knew absolutely nothing about the server, I timidly placed my rank as a 3Dan.  I think that I could have set myself higher, but that's alright.  Starting out a bit low just means that I get [...]

WBaduk 5dans – Develop Dragons

Lots of groups running all around this board in this WBaduk game which I thought was just wonderful. In so many games that we play we get into situations where we fall into this situation. The frustrating part of getting better at go is knowing that running groups should be a source of [...]

WBaduk 5dans – Have Direction Problems

So here we have a WBaduk 5dan game in which my opponent displayed a staggering amount of uncertainty in both the opening as well as direction of play. Whenever I play people like this I can't help but think to myself that perhaps I'm taking advantage of a player who has had a bit [...]
