Go4Go.net is a Go web site serving the Go community since more than ten years (with start in Novermber 2002). In it’s earlierst stage Go4Go.net had a Chinese version online sometime back in year 2000.
With an own account Go4Go.net was very helpfully for my own Go studies from beginning (1st game of Jubango on 26th January 2014). Since then some games from the Go4Go.net achive I am studying you find here on MySRS Go blog, with given (and written) permission by Go4Go.net for re-publishing.
The author of Go4Go.net is macelee (a 6 dan amateur player). The site contains a frequently updated professional game database as well as various other services (Source: Sensei’s Library | last update: 01/2014).
The Go4Go Features…
- The site hosts the most frequently updated professional game collection on the Internet (beside GoKifu which started in 2010 and GoBase which is no more active since 2011). Go4Go’s database contains today 44883 games (January 2014: 40,000+ games) covering most international tournaments and domestic tournaments of China, Japan and Korea. It is updated daily. Till today alone in 2014 have been collected 3,494 games.
Historical games are also gradually compiled and added to the database. Games are viewable online and can be download individually. For a small fee, users can have the latest SGF files delivered by weekly emails and download the entire collection.
- The site is also hosting an archive of commented games by Go Professional Alexandre Dinerchtein (3p).
- Go4Go is an open environment. Users are able to contribute contents as well as making comments of existing contents.
An interesting – as I see it – uniquely service are the charts of tournament results from events around the globe (World), Korea, China and Japan (see screenshots). You get access to the score charts in the segment “Tournament News“:
Many tks to Mace for his daily work !
