Shukaku Takagawe’s book. “The Vital Points in GO” (Video tutorial)

… as pure beginner, often I heard the advice: just play, play, play (and loose your first 1,000 games) *laugh*.

Personally I like studying in my own way… means, I like to talk with experienced GO players and learn from them.. I like a lot reviews of games (not only my own ones)… I like to study fuseki and tsumego (meanwhile I like it a little bit but still cracks my head with “life and death” situations), and after playing my first tournament (KIDO CUP) I fell in love with competitive playing too as the Go community is great.

And I like big Go players like Takagawe Taku (known as Shukaku Takagawe – http://senseis.xmp.net/?TakagawaKaku ) who wrote different books in ENG.

Here a good video tutorial I found today about Shukaku’s book “The Vital points of Go“…

part 1…

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…
