Real Board Go Lectures – Huang Longshi – A Chinese Master

This time in my Real Board Go Lectures I take a look at Huang Longshi, a Chinese master go player. Unfortunately he was someone who was apparently not appreciated in his own time. It wasn't until later that people going back and viewing his games realized that he was indeed one of the [...]

In our last Go Lecture we took a look at Lee Changho playing against the High Chinese Fuseki. This time it's Lee Sedol's turn to take a crack at the fuseki seeing as how this particular fuseki seems sticking around the go world longer than I would have expected.

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.

Legend88 – Rematches Atnight

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 [...]

Let’s Study – A Territorial Game

Sorry about the quality this time around. I tried different settings for camera capture and it didn't go too well.
Aside from that, enjoy a nice game of how to profit even when you can't kill!
