This is a repost from the AGA web site, but David Lee Roth, the lead singer of Van Halen, just posted a picture on his Facebook page of him taking a go lesson with Kim Myungwan 9p:

I hope that someday when David's group needs to run towards the center, Myungwan says, "You might as well jump."

Tangential: isn't Kim on the record as saying that whoever came up with the proverb about a one-space jump never being wrong was an idiot?

Not just local news.

Last night the NPR business program had the story because "technology advance" news. Only slightly distorted with Lee described as if he were the current strongest player rather than former strongest player.

Just for a second in Ep 97 of Chi's New Address, when the cat Hana mentions her family...

Hi Inkwolf,

I'm trying to see if there's (only?) one (!) Go bowl barely visible,
at his lower right corner. :) Or, it could be shogi. :)

And what's that object near his left knee ?

I cannot comment on the object near his left knee but, by using the latest in photo enhancement and analysis technology, I was able to conclude that the object in question could be a go bowl.

As you can see, the perspective line A does not match up with the bowl candidate object B, which I assumed had an elliptical shape and matched up with this blue shadow. As such, we can conclude that the object is not the door frame and is in front of the door frame (because it obscures the door frame). Finally, the object is obscured both by the floor and by the table leg C and so we can conclude it is between the table and the door frame and resting on the floor at about the height of the pillow, putting it in an appropriate place for the man to use it as a go bowl. As for the second bowl, it could be behind the first one or even behind the man's unseen right knee. Since the man seems to be right handed (he is placing an object on the board with his right hand), keeping both bowls on his right would be reasonable for replaying pro games or doing tsumego, which we can assume is the purpose of the book.

From this, I conclude the object could be a go bowl. Or a brown teapot...

It's a katori buta, a ceramic, pig-shaped holder for a mosquito coil.

Awesome, thanks for the info … I had thought it was a pig-shaped Go bowl but didn't want to write that because … well, because :roll:

Hi Inkwolf,

I don't have access to the original anime --
if this scene was animated, it would be much more clear.
I don't know if it was a still-frame ( like a flashback instance ),
or actually animated, with movements.
( I did look very carefully, as I usually do. )

The resolution is a bit low -- the blurry thing
could be the shadowed side of a Shogi piece. :)
I cannot tell beyond a reasonable doubt
its shape (round; go stone) or its color. :)

Here are the three frames I could capture of the old guy at the table. I think you will agree that at least the second frame looks far more like a black go stone than any alternative.

Advertisement in the Austrian “Neue Freie Presse”, June 25, 1882 (quite sure that was mainstream at the time ;-) )

Quote:
For pastime 碁 in the summer holidays!

“Go”

National game of the Japanese


“Go” is, by all means, not a game for children but a game of culture-historical significance which has already existed three millennia ago in China and which should certainly arouse greatest interest among all friends of Chess. Price of the elegant edition in cardboard box 2 fl. 35 kr. Specimen from wood in supreme elegant adjustment. Price 10 fl.

R. Lechner’s imperial and royal household and university bookstore, Graben 31


(from a personal page in the domain of the Austrian Go Society http://pokspace.goverband.at/essays/fund_presse.htm. You can find a few more ads there, the earliest from 1882-06-06)

Very excited to see PokemonGO become an international sensation.

Very disappointed to learn it has nothing to do with go
