Rengo (Pair GO)

26th July 2014 (review): 2nd RENGO (Go Pair) test game…

Its 02:00 am (on 27th July2014) in Europe  …and since 45 minutes the players of the RENGO Game (2nd test) have left the “dojo”. Many tks to the players of RENGO-Team SUN (Team A) and RENGO-Team JUPITER (Team B), tks to Sefo + The Arctic and their opponents Rikhon + LinuxGooo (me). 🙂

The game started on 26th July 2014 one hour later at 08:30 pm UTC because of some techincal issues….. here first many tks to Rikhon who jumped into this game replacing GoRogue couple of hours before the start. We appreciate your passoin for GO, Rikhon even knowing, that it was 03:30 am Indian local time (Bangladesh) when we started and finishing it at 06:00 am IST.

The game was played felt more that of Pros by its speed. Inclusive a 10 minutes break the players sat over 2.5 hours till 10:55 UTC behind the board. White (RENGO-Team SUN) won by resigning after white played move 124 on L13… Congratulations to Sefo + The Arctic for this win.


This 2nd test game had a good feedback, up to 15-16 spectators in peak… so our thank’s same to all OGSers, Rengo lovers or players who were interested to see how a Rengo game can be played on OGS with specific RENGO-Team accounts, as for now OGS has no timer and ranking system implemented (we suppose that this will come in 2015).

The players themself gave a first positive feedback how it was handled technically… more details will come later. – We hope for your understanding, that the players first wished a time-out. We will orgainze next days a high Dan to give a review/analysis of the game… we will inform you about date and time.

If you like to do a short review on your own, here the link or SGF download of the game: on Eidogo | OGS

The fully Chat documentation is available as PDF download from here: http://goo.gl/i9N1HE2

We wish you a wonderful Sunday. Again its Jubango Time, game 6 with Gu Li (9P) and Lee Sedol (9P) in Liuan. The live stream/broadcasting will start on 27th July 2014 at 01:00 am UTC (03:000 am CEST / 10:00 am local time). More infos on Pandanet IGS here !


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…
