I feel like we could start a thread: Tygem troll or Ke Jie, can you spot the difference?

Is there any implication to 4-4s in the opening? Are they decreasing in relative preference to e.g., 4-3?

I've not noticed, but then "playing 4-4s only 55% of the time instead of 65% of the time" is far less noticeable when idling watching the latest pro games than these early 3-3s are. I don't know if Ke Jie thinks these early 3-3s are the best move, or maybe he's just experimenting (perhaps preparing for the AlphaGo match). He's so strong that he could be winning these games in spite of rather than because of them. But it's very interesting that he considers them playable enough to use in serious matches (though Chinese league is a non-knockout team event so less personal cash/pride on the line than an individual tournament, it will be interesting to see if he uses them in e.g. the ENN Cup final). If you told me 2 years ago that the top pro in the world would be invading at 3-3 on move 6 in a serious tournament game because of a bot I'd have been incredulous.

Of course. Perhaps someone proficient with pattern searching software could give us figures for the number of 4-4s played in the past few months compared to pre-alphago. Maybe nothing changed.

I realise it's pissing in the wind, but I say again: none of this is really new.

Here's Hayashi Yutaro playing an early 3-3 in the 1928 Oteai.



There are other examples. Here's an amusimng one (although by transposition) from 1967 between the two Fujisawas.



Zhou Lanyu played a rather stunning example against Guo Bailing around 1650.

It's the same move, but I think it's a different (and new) kind of idea. In the first example, White is planning on playing the joseki out inc. the 2nd line hane and pressing the 3-4 stone on the side Black blocks in order to reduce the influence of the wall. This idea has been around for a long time, but AlphaGo's idea is that Black will eventually owe a move on that wall, i.e. it's thin, and this, IME, is genuinely new (of course, I haven't seen nearly as many games as you have!)

It's not a new move. I played this when I was 18k.

But the meaning might have been different. :)

Viktor Lin (6d from Austria) wrote a nice article on the EGF site about these early 3-3s, with an example from Li Zhe before Ke Jie started doing it:

Viktor Lin's article is wrong. The record for the earliest to play the 3-3 in an official game is not Ke-Li Qincheng (move 6 this May), but - in both senses - Han Chong-chin vs Kim Seung-ryong on move 5 in the Maxim Cup this January.

Han too was experimenting with the new outside strategy. But his example is much more remarkable because he did it TWICE in the same game (the second case was on move 13). But he lost by 2.5.

What do we think of Ke Jie's early 33 invasion against AlphaGo? Full game at viewtopic.php?p=219631#p219631.

Looking over the game, I lean towards thinking White still got what he wanted, getting lots of compensation for letting Black settle near his wall, but I'm too weak to know.

Not as bad for black as we used to think the early 3-3 was, but not great for him either, nor as good as for those other times he used it against humans and then wedged and the wall wondered about its eyes. I only skipped around the Myungwan Kim stream, but I think he said he didn't like it and Ke Jie should just have played normally.

It might not have been the best idea to simply copy one of another player's "typical" moves in a game against this player, not really knowing WHY (and WHEN) she chooses that move.

I read Viktor Lin's writeup about new ideas related to the 3-3 point (which was very well written, I might add).

One of the innovations made by AlphaGo, as I understand from the article, was the fact that AlphaGo often omits the :b9: :w10: exchange, below, in the typical variation, which makes white stronger on the bottom:

$$ +---------------------------------------+[/go]


Black has two benefits outside of getting the territory:
1.) White's wall, while influence, can still be attacked later - white hasn't been strengthened on the bottom.
2.) Black gets sente.

In the game against Ke Jie, yesterday, though, AlphaGo threw in the knight's move:

This kind of messes up the idea that I thought Viktor was explaining.
Option 1: Black gives up sente, which is not as good.
Option 2: Like in the game, black got sente, but ended up giving white a nice shape:

White seems thicker and harder to attack.

Is the early 3-3 such a great move, given white's knight's move response? I guess AlphaGo played it, so maybe it thinks it's even?

Perhaps AlphaGo has taught us that in response to an early 3-3 invasion, hane at the head of two stones is not as good as the keima. :)

Certainly seems possible. I caught a bit of Myungwan's commentary after the fact (didn't see that part live), and he chat a little bit about the hane:

He pointed out that black was not alive when white descends:

So since that's sente for white, white can get strong there anyway, I guess. So that's the reason for the hane, it seems.

That being said, I seem to recall alphago crawling again on the second line:

Maybe the point is to make black alive without doing the hane.

I don't have a complete thought formed about this, yet, but it's certainly interesting.

I think the 3-3 invasion didn't really go well with the first 3-3 move at the upper left. When AlphaGo played the early invasion, it normally has a 4-4 or 4-3 on the other corner. I understand Ke Jie's strategy was to take territory first, but two 3-3s were probably a little extreme.

Actually, I think it is the adjacent corners rather than opposite corner that have more bearing on the merits of the early 3-3 invasion of a bare 4-4 (one with no extensions). If we look at when Master played it, there are strong (or reasonably strong) stones (marked) in those areas, which act to somewhat mitigate the influence of the resulting white wall (not hugely significant, but did Master only 3-3 invade as black?). Michael Redmond pointed this out in his review of the Gu Zihao game below:

In this game the top left approach stone was played before the 3-3 and isn't exactly strong, but Master uses its sente after the 3-3 to then settle it with attach at a. The approach timing before the 3-3 can be seen as a probe: if played after the 3-3 white is likely to kick to attack more strongly.

But Ke Jie's 3-3 invasion doesn't share these properties: he has a strong shimari in the upper right but it's rather far away and pointing the wrong direction (would be better at a), and the lower left there is no black presence but a white high big shimari which which works better with the resulting wall, and also makes a wedge have less space to invade.

Surely Ke Jie will have studied these positions deeply, so I do find his 3-3 surprising. Maybe he just wanted to look cool and give a nice story, or wanted AlphaGo to teach him how to deal with an early 3-3 (based on this 1 game the answer could be one-point jump rather than hane), but 'wasting' such a big match to do so (rather than one of the Master games) is odd.

Ke Jie win at first round of LG Cup had a little bit of background story

Apparently, he drank wine for 9 hours! Starting from 6 pm to 3 am, and plane to South Korea depart at 6 am, so only 2 hours of sleep!
He said he usually doesn't drink, but this time, he was accompanied by big brother 'Gu Li', some senior players (I guess Nie Weiping?), and surprisingly also by some of DeepMind's people. In his dream he won against AlphaGo, but in reality he wake up and beat Weon Seongjin.
