Augst 10th Go Teaching Seminar in Oakland

I had blogged about Iceman's work to launch an elementary school Go program (1st, 2nd and 3rd posts on his initial efforts and success). It's remarkable how quickly he was able to launch the program and how members of the online Kiseido Go Server community and Yellow Mountain Imports contributed to it.

Iceman dropped me a note about a special event taking place on August 10th in Oakland, California. It's a seminar on teaching Go sponsored by the Ing Goe Foundation. If you're in the area and would like to attend, please RSVP to Carolyn Doelling at (510) 208-0807.

At the very least, maybe attending the event can help one understand the Ing counting system and rules.

Fuseki Quiz 16/20

Black to move. The odd enclosure in the upper right looks big enough
to drive an 18-wheeler through so I'd go with C.

Scoring of last weekend's Fuseki Quiz 15/20
(Jump to the last quiz!)
  • A = 8
  • B = 10, Defending here is a good move. Such a move shows composure. If Black gets to invade at 1 in the lower diagram, a sever fight will immediately break out to White's disadvantage.
  • C = 6
  • D = 4
  • E = 2
Diagram 1

I will go with D, makes 8 white moves pretty worthless and prevents white from using thickness to attack that bottom group so I would say it is urgent (or possibly worthless if I read it wrong).
