Learn Go Week, Tournament

Looking for interesting games? SGF database ( > 44880 games ) has Intern. Tournament News (scores, results + kifus)

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 !


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…
