Ah, shodan. A fond idea in my single-digit kyuu heart.

Let's share some adventures, surprises and lessons. I hope it is enjoyable.


A bit of history.

I learned go in 2006, but only begun playing in 2007, after creating a
go club in my university. I played a few games once a week then and
until 2009, when studies took over. I was an average single digit kyuu then.

Time goes by, and I did not play go anymore. The desire to play was there,
a fond memory, yet never enough to break the inertia. I believed to have
found other things in life that filled the same void, yet had practical
implications (perhaps go is just a game... I thought).

At some point (may or june 2016) I find myself thinking of go again
and again. I found myself searching online for goban images, and
even caught myself musing over why, somehow, the fact that computers
can play go did not change my appreciation for the game
(perhaps go isn't just a game... I wonder)


Now, without further ado, let's go!
(Thanks to EdLee for helping me get the sgf inclusion correctly!)




Also, a simple problem.
What is the situation of the black group below?

Note: I am trying to understand what I am doing wrong.
Perhaps mixing sgf-full and go tags is not good...
To debug:
  • Start small;
  • Baby steps;
  • Test your theory;

Thank you EdLee for your time and tips!

I am back to go after a long time.

Much happened. I have now a degree, and a wonderful son.

With life regaining some balance, it's time to step on the road again.

I am posting two games. One victory and one loss. Comments are quite welcome!

I am now essentially playing correspondence games on OGS (I am ~6k), as
it is very (!) hard to find 30 minutes without interruptions.

Best to all of you!

Here are the games:
