Restarting regular play
Coming back from vacation, and a long hiatus from regularly doing problems or reading books, I tried playing on Kiseido Go Server and my rank fell back to 17k.
bitti had counseled me in an email (as many of you have similarly done) to ignore my rank and to avoid any mental blocks that might make one believe that achieving a higher rank isn't possible. One of my last posts expressed a sense of "unworthiness" of my earlier achieved 14k and that mental attitude, he warningly alluded, can affect one's progress.
Sound advice. I'm just going to get myself back on track with regular readings, daily tsumego and, hopefully, a more game reviews. See you all online!
Fuseki Quiz 13/20
upper right. My problem is that I have no idea how D or E would
be applied; so instead I choose C.
Scoring of the previous Fuseki Quiz 12/20
(Jump to the last quiz!)
- A = 2
- B = 10, It's time to strike at the vital point of the corner enclosure. This is the biggest move on the board. The exchange of 2 for 3 in Diagram 1 is expected, but it is very important to divide the left side. It would be too big to let White play D12.
- C = 6
- D = 4
- E = 8
