Coming up on my Go anniversary
The next weekend will mark roughly one year of my having taken Go as serious leisure. I'm working on a touchstone post to celebrate the occasion.
ChiyoChan has a slight cold so I'm doing a shorter blog post. She's been watching DVDs of Princess Nine while resting in bed.
A peek into my corner of the world
VincentV had collected photos of several Go players' study spaces in their homes and you can see the whole gallery on his blog.
One of them is mine. It's easy to recognize since you can see my two gobans from Yellow Mountain Imports. I've recently been using the small one to study hamete from Goama.
I like to think of my spot as The Corner of Deep Contemplation but it was, and still sometimes is, The Corner of Poorly-Played Hawaiian Ukulele Music.
Fuseki Quiz 7/20
attacking two weak groups simultaneously.
Scoring of Last Weekend's Fuseki Quiz 6/20
- A = 8
- B = 6
- C = 10, The way to nullify White's six-stone wall is for Black to first cap at J5. White must answer at L4, after which Black can start to build his own large territory on the left side with D11 (Move A). Black cannot allow White to be the first to play on J5 as it is the ideal way to make use of her wall on the right.
- D = 2
- E = 4
