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) ?
