Games, SanRenSei

Double SanRenSei game (14th-21st Oct 2014) … w+19.5

Here a “double SanRenSei” match which had been played as correspondence game over seven (7) days (from 14th till 21st Oct) with the result w+19.5

Tks to wow (12k) for challenging me on 10th Oct. It was an interesting game as we both are SanRenSei / Cosmic style players (or less, try to become one in farer future). From beginning it was clear, that we both will open with classical SanRenSei star point fuseki.

Rec.: In tendency it is said, that playing SanRenSei as white against black as SRS then white can’t win the game as black can position first the “centrer stone” (mostly asymetric one coordinate beside K10/Tengen), same as it happened in the game black claimed its big moyo playing first on L10.

With the analysis of a bigger game database, e.g. Fuseki.info (Total number of games in database where both players are professionals: 78,476 / status: 21st Oct 2014)… during first ten (10) moves the statistics for white to win the game decrease to 40%.


Here the game: Black’s attack onto left side was tough as it pushed up white with a wall on G8-G10. Luckily white got the chance to block and to sneak in via G11 as black decided for a “large knight move” up to J13 instead H12.

In the endgame black missed to cut white playing simply P8 instead of M18, which gave white the chance to break through to right side. It was costly for black and gave white 10 points.

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…
