KIDO CUP, Tournament

Back from KIDO CUP 2014 (7th-9th June)… what an amazing experience… :-)

just a short hello of now.. I am still alive after going through my 3 days tournament (7 rounds)… what a beautiful experience I will present later some more pics and infos about… just for now a short snap whom we had as guest players, lecturers, reviewing games, Rengo, Simultan and others… *sorry, not the best pic (I’d needed a ladder* Group-Photo-09062014-3 The KIDO CUP ended after the prize ceremony with a snap for nice memories with wonderful Go players/teachers on high level… 3rd row (f.l.t.r.): In-Seoing Hwang with wife Semi – 2nd row (f.l.t.r.): Kim Young Whan (9P), Seo Neung Uk (9P), Yoon Young Sun (8P), Kang Seung He (2P) – 1st row (f.l.t.r.): Park Ji Eun (9P), Park Jang Hee (5D, Sponsor with Kido Industrial Co.), Martin Stiassny (president of EGF/European Go Federation), Kim Hyo Jung (2P), Ha Ho Joeng (3P) (@copyright: Linuxgooo)


My last (an best) game I played on Monday (9th June) in 7th round I was happy with (see the sgf transcription attached), even I lost as black with 24.5 points (inclusive Komi) against a 7k (KGS) with my yet very low rank of 15k (KGS).


(for individual reviews / SGF download the game is available on Eidogo | OGS)

Only some points I missed to make the win by my (global) strategy as I didnt block white’s invasion into left side effectivly on F10 (which costed me alone 25 points). I admit, I was too greedy so GO let pay one the prize fairly – As I began Go playing 4.5 months ago now KIDO Cup (as my first tournament ever) was a uniquely and positivly experience I wish , every Go player can experience in his life of playing. Its a concrete proof of own skills. (Rec.: I lost 1:6 as total result, But knowing, that I could have won less 3 games if I’d have avoided some few own mistaked missing concentration gives me confidence and the motivation to keep going my GO studies.)

PS: Tks to Francisa and VincentCB (both on OGS) for their reviews.


About LinuxGooo

I am a real Go Beginner… but I like to learn and have fun with. And I fell in love with playing for influence (mainly San-RenSei fuseki, Cosmic style) as white and black. … 26th Jan 2014 I started on KGS (as 6-7kyu since Sept), another global GO Server on the web. On 4th March 2014 I registrated on OGS (Online Go Server). In July I began to play on Korean servers, on Tygem (10kyu) and on Wbaduk (11kyu). If possible by time, I like to have reviews and analysis of my games, which helps to progress (beside observing/Kibitzing Dan games). – My special thanks go to different KGS teachers/players for audio lectures and individual reviews: Dsaun (N.Y.), Battusai, TapJoshua (4D), Troll (2D), MXHero (5D), Shygost (3D), Mingjiu Jiang (7P)… not to forget all the other KGS players who offered me their knowledge and shared their personal experiences. My special tks go to Dsaun for his audio lecture “Shape” (on 22nd Febr 2014) which was the first step into a systemtical learning. Currently I study with www.321go.org and with the first GO book: “Graded Go Problems for Beginners” (Vol. 1-4) by Kano Yoshinori. Volume 1: Introductory Problems Volume 2: Elementary Problems VOlume 3: Intermediate Problems Volume 4: Advanced Problems For individual “offline training” I experimented with and use different bot programmes: Aya 6.34 (1k), Oakfoam GNU Go 3.8 and Zenith 4.4. better known as Zen (5k-5D) (Rec.: Running these bots I use as front end (Goban) Drago.) For editing/rediting SGF files the programme MultiGo 4 is suitable. Have fun behind the board…
