I know many of the people on this board are interested in learning/memory/spaced repetition. I myself just started using Anki as a result of Michael Nielsen's essay Augmenting Long-Term Memory.

Are you a professional go player?

If not why use flashcards?

Just follow the go activities you like and improve that way.

(I for one like reviewing my games.)

No.

They improve my play and make me more confident, which makes me enjoy playing go more.

I like going through my flashcards and verifying that I have retained the information on them, so that is not a problem.

I do that too!

So far, I am not using Anki for Go, though I’ve considered it.

But I don’t get your question. Would you say the same thing about life and death problems?

Just a bit of small talk.

Yes, for myself I would say the same for L&D Problems.

But I enjoy a L&D app nonetheless, if there is some time available during my everyday routine.


I did not want to question the quality of your advice and I am sure it is good advice for many people. I just can not make myself to study hard with a flashcard software or L&D problem books

I have no problem to study hard by reviewing games (my own and pro) and using AI to analyze/learn shapes, because I enjoy these activities just as much as playing.

I’m also a fan of this strategy. If you haven’t seen it and you have an iOS device, EasyGo (http://www.easygo361.com) has a nice feature that lets you upload your own problems as sgf’s. For example, I’m still working through Cho Chikun’s Life and Death book by picking a related set of shapes (for example, the L groups) and uploading all of the permutations to EasyGo. Creating the sgf “problems” has also been a great way to work carefully through the material.

It also has a number of settings to calibrate the spaced repetition features, but I can’t say that I’ve found that too helpful.

Just re-encountered an enormous review of spaced repetition: https://www.gwern.net/Spaced-repetition.

Hi hyperpape,

Thanks. The compound (exponential) effect is nice.
