KGS Ranking – Too Much Commentary

Alright. For reasons that could have only sounded good at the time, I invited two people to commentate this game with me. It should be noted this is the only time I did this and with good reason. It's just not possible to stay focused! Was still fun though! So [...]

KGS Ranking – Another 2kyu???

Automatch hates me. It keeps putting me against 2kyus when I'm trying to rank up. Either way here we go again against the Low Chinese Fuseki.

KGS Ranking – Crazy 2kyu…

Ok, this guy opened up quite odd. Not much else to say about this game. He played very strange.

KGS Ranking – 1kyu Fighting!

Automatch puts me back against a kyu who decides to play High Chinese. I think this is only the second time I've seen this opening played against me in all of my recordings.

KGS Ranking – 1dan Comes At Us

In this game the 1dan comes at us immediately, then tries to build up influence. Makes sense. I dont think they took it too kindly. Tried to fight back and kill me. That's not to say it's not a good idea. If you have influence attacking groups is the thing [...]

KGS Ranking – 2kyu Goes For Territory

In this game of Baduk we see the opponent try to go for territory, I think. The game was kinda strange because he opened for influence then sorta transitioned rather abruptly. Not sure what I think about that. A bit inconsistent, perhaps.

KGS Ranking – 3kyu Cross Fuseki!

Wow. In all the games I've posted, this is one of (if not the) first time playing the cross fuseki. I have to admit, I'm getting a real eye opener posting these videos just what I don't normally play and play too much of. I should do more of these cross games!

Now [...]

KGS Ranking – 4kyu!

Up to 4kyu now and I brought in a friend of mine to try and ask me questions I might not think to answer. I like the idea behind it but, if I'm being completely honest, the recording at this point is kinda low quality. My microphone and my friends microphone are not [...]

KGS Ranking – 6kyu Bot

So, on KGS the normal method of ranking up is finding a bot, beating a bot, and getting a provisional rank. Since you rank up quickly on KGS it doesn't take too long to climb the ranks, but it does mean you have to start off a lot lower than you normally would want [...]
