Real Board Go Lectures – Mastering Aji

Aji. To those untrained in the ability to see aji, the future of a game can be quite murky, indeed. This game does not feature such players. Two professional players battle it out on tygem and show all of us amateur players a thing of two about how important it is to [...]

Real Board Go Lectures – My Worst Video Ever!

In many ways this is the worst best recording I've ever done. The settings on the camera weren't quite what I thought they were and needs a lot more testing! Next time shall be better!

That said, these two professionals, even with the terrible quality, are worth memorizing. These guys will be the [...]

Go Lecture: Tygem Pros – Idontca1 Misses Nothing

The first part of this lecture can be found here. In this second part we continue to observe idontca1 as he plays other professionals on the Go server Tygem. However, where the first game was all about reducing the center, this time we see idontca1 decide to use influence rather than reduce it.

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.

In this game we see him take an [...]

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 [...]
