Hello!
I am new to the forum, but have been playing Go for years avidly, however it has always been an intriguing and mysterious recreation rather than a serious hobby. I have now finally decided to take Go more seriously, and have started perusing the beginner's section, as well as reading various books. Additionally, I am looking to upgrade from my two year old scratched up magnetic set to some kind of Bamboo floorboard with some Ing stones, if any one has these please PM me.

I was wondering, as there are SO many resources out there if there are any recommendations that you had for me about where to start first, as I am in an odd spot. I know basic things about the game, such as Keima attacks and how to play generally well (i.e. roughly what good groups are, tiger's mouth etc, as well as how to open abstractly before fighting it out, but haven't formalized these nor have progressed in any way.

Thanks so much!
EH :study: :D

Play a lot.

A really common problem among go players (including me) is to spend too much energy studying (or, worse yet, figuring out how to study best) and not enough energy playing.

I also find that a lot of people who obsess over learning early on never learn to love playing.
