The legendary player Go Seigen (born 12th July 1914) demised on 30th November 2014… best we can take from Seigen’s period of nearby hundred years to learn and study his games and keep the spirit of Go Seigen alive.

Here a special lecture (level: 5k to 5d) at the Nihon Ki-in summer go camp with Michael Redmond about Go Seigen’s speed oriented opening with the chance to move quickly to the sides and
targeting at a well-balanced playing overall positions.

The annually event targets at to let Non-Japanese Go players (suitable for from 10 kyu up to high dan players) get stronger, feel and learn the Japanese culture of Go through fantastic programs provided by the Japan Go Association Nihon Ki-in (Tokyo). In autumn 2014 was commemorated the 90th anniversary of the foundation. It took place at The Nihon Ki-in from 26th August till September 4th 2014.

Michael Redmond (9P Dan, born: 1963) had begun with Go at the age of 11… and with 14 he became Insei at the Nihon Ki-in. As professional Dan he started at the age of 18 (1985: 5Dan… 2000: 9Dan).  He published in 2011 the Go book “Patterns of the SanRenSei“. (Source: Wikipedia / Sensei’s Library).

As Roy Laird reported on 28th August 2010 in the American Go E-Journal Kamakura is the book written by GoGoD co-author John Fairbairn covering Seigen’s first matchup during World War II. It was published in spring 2010 by Slate and Shell.
Fairbairn herewith draws on a host of sources, most not available in English, to both thoroughly analyze the games and also describe the historical and cultural dimensions of the event.
The games are presented using many diagrams, each with only a few new moves, so that the games can be followed and understood without setting up a board. This large format study provides an unusual depth of insight into some famous and important games. (free PDF samle here)

Tks to BadukMovies (Peter B. and Kim O.) and Michael Redmond  !

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…
