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: 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.

Alright, so there is this player on Tygem called Atnight. His style of play is to take tengen and then invade everywhere. Doesn't sound like a very good strategy, does it? Problem with amateurs is that can work really well because it falls onto the person playing against this method not to [...]

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 [...]
