The primary goal of this project is to lower the barrier to entry for appreciating, enjoying and learning go by providing free professional game collections and direction to new and experienced players alike.

The collections are in PDF format and come in both single diagram and 50-move diagram layouts. Each includes: a player biography, a game list, game records, and a selection of recommended games -- which provide a place to start for those unfamiliar with the professional.

Five new collections will be released at the beginning of each month.

Should you have any comments or questions, please feel free to post them here or send me a PM.

Thank you! The extra content you've included (e.g. the recommended games list) makes this really useful, and I look forward to familiarizing myself with some of these great players.

Online playing schedule: Every tenth February 29th from 20:00-20:01 (if time permits)
I tried to access the 50d files and they all timed out with an error. I assume they are too large. Is anyone else having that problem? The 1d ones seem fine.

EDIT: I got it working with Firefox. My default browser is Opera.

Still officially AGA 5d but I play so irregularly these days that I am probably only 3d or 4d over the board (but hopefully still 5d in terms of knowledge, theory and the ability to contribute).

I had that problem with Firefox, but they downloaded fine in Internet Explorer.

Lovely, really nicely done.

Decided to start with Iyama and was treat to see some of his earlier games included.

Thank you for putting these together for us.

Thanks so much for your hard work! I really enjoy going through these.

As a note, the 50d version of shi yue links to the sakata page instead of the shi yue games. ^^;

Hi Guys,

I am having problems downloading any of the versions from the games of Lee Sedol.
Is anybody else having problems downloading them?

I know a new month has arrived when I feverishly find myself refreshing this thread. Two days of F5 have paid off, thank you so much for your continued effort on this project.

Thank-you for the kind words. I had no idea the e-books were that interesting to anyone.

I hope you have a great month.

I'm working on Mr. Fan, but since I don't have enough commented games of his to reference I'm having to go through all of them myself. I'm about 40-games in, so it'll be some time before he's finished.
