Post subject:  Hi there from Surrey BC.

Hi all,

This is probably my second or third attempt at learning to play Go. I did attend the Vancouver Go club (10 - 15 years ago) but found that I was somewhat dismissed by the experienced players. I played, and lost, one 9 stone handicapped game and was then mostly ignored. I found that very demoralizing and gave up.

I am not currently playing games but reading and working through some problems on my phone. I do not know if I will ever end up playing people or just stay working on it on my own with a computer.

if you can imagine playing a slooooooow and relaxed correspondence game on OGS, with appropriate handicap etc., then hit me up on OGS – online-go.com, my nickname is “trohde”, I’ll then create a challenge.

Greetings, Tom
still “on the road” of life, so to speak

Hi Tom,

I would like that but I really am a very beginner player at this stage having just relearned the rules. As long as it would not be too painful for you I will take you up on the offer.

Heh, I don’t mind losing a game where I have given “too many” handicap stones :-) Let’s chat on OGS and we’ll find game settings that will allow both of us a challenging yet fun game.

Again thanks. I so appreciate your welcome and support. I'll reply on OGS later and take your suggestions as to settings. In doing problems right now, my only experience, I range from 29 - 25k so we will use that range as our level. We can also make it a ranking game.

I'll contact you later.
