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 [...]
Oh Man! What a time to be studying professional games. There are so many young professionals bursting onto the scene that it's an extremely exciting time to be studying and an absolute pleasure to be bringing you these guys in my Real Board Go Lectures!
This time we take a peek at young Korean [...]
I picked this game of Ke Jie's to go over for my Real Board Go Lecture's because the life and death in this game is quite phenomenal. We always hear that professional Go players can live in areas where you wouldn't expect. Here we get to see young Ke Jie demonstrate his prowess on the [...]
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 [...]

More wonderful Legend88 action. This time we see him go up against an unorthodox 5dan opening. Need simple answers in your game? Then study these!
