Go Techniques, Go Worldwide

Fully GO Curriculum is online again… 321go in 7 languages availabe

One of the best websites with a fully (and cost free) GO Curriculum is online again… its www.321go.org .

The Website is hosted and maintained in Netherlands, but available in six languages (incl. ENG). – A good GO friend of mine started to play Go in November 2013, and with the help of 321go.org he made it till May 2014 to 7kyu (on KGS). Its a very worthfully source to learn the basics and to play successfully up to 10kyu minimum.

The fully GO Course has more than 3,700 exercises, organized well in 6 main chapters… registration is cost free. You can do the excercises as often as you like, and it has a controlling tool (with To-Doe List) you know which ones you should repeat till you have “0 faults” (see my own statistics in last screenshot).

The Website even has Go instructurors (coaches) you can contact via the website if you should need some support or you have some questions you can send them a SGF indivdiually.

The exercises are inter-active, e.g. clicking the correct moves or as multiple choice… for double digit kyus (DDKs) its an excellent tool to learn all basics, e.g. counting, (Double) Atari, creating living groups, understanding the basics of “life and death”, KO, Seki, Ladder, Net, conneting and cuttting, catching, openings, josekis, tesujis etc. ….



As you see I still have to make part of chapter 4, and fully chapters 5 + 6…

Have fun with your GO studies !  


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…
