New and upcoming GO generation of GO Pros… the generation after Gu Li and Lee Sedol

I love it to watch Pro games… they are very teachable, if one can follow this playing in the world of Pro Dans by live streaming (e.g. on Wbaduk, Tygem or KGS, Baduk TV etc. …) and good commentaries or reviews.


The first threre rounds of 2nd Bailing Cup just finished (1st round: 18th March, 2nd round: 22nd July and 3rd round 24th July in Baejing/China)… and there we have seen a generation playing, which is in average (round about) seven years younger than the two top names having played there too:  Gu Li and Lee Sedol who get attracted a bigger interest in the GO world this year playing the Jubango (a series of 10 games in 10 different cities). – What’s coming then next (in the Quarter-, Semifinals and Final) ?

What names you know who participated in the Bailing Cup 2014 ? ([Source][1])

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…
