Hello everyone,
I'm proud to introduce Yuugen, a weekly Go journal created by a Finnish-Russian-Japanese team. The idea of this journal is to help aspiring strong DDK and SDK players improve their game. In the future, the journal might expand to include more articles on different topics, but at its core are two continually running sections:
1. Antti's Professional Game Reviews - Antti Törmänen 1p has kindly agreed to create weekly pro game reviews for us. The reviews will be both fairly comprehensive and at the same time accessible to kyu players. Most of the games will be taken from contemporary Japanese pro matches (I've heard from several pro strength players that Japanese games are more accessible for amateurs than Korean/Chinese ones, so that's a good fit for our journal), but some older, classical games will be occasionally reviewed, too.
2. From Russia with Tsumego. Vadim Philippov, a strong Russian 4d player, will select 24 tsumego problems of varying difficulty levels every week (with solutions provided in the next issue). We strongly believe that this way, our journal will contain a MED (minimal effective dose) for Go improvement - solving problems improves your reading and shape knowledge, and studying commented pro games is great both for shape knowledge and for general understanding.
The journal subscription will cost 10 euros/month (PayPal payments). Ordinarily that is for four issues, which I believe is already great value, but in October there will be five issues, the first being sent out on Oct 1 (Please don't worry about the timing - if you subscribe later in the month, you'll get all the October issues anyway, of course). PM me with inquiries.
Misha Zagorski, Russian 1d, Tygem 4d and a collaborator in this project.

Hello everyone,
with a delay of one day (our apologies!) the first issue of Yuugen is ready. To let everyone see for themselves the quality of the journal before subscribing, we're making the first issue free. Unfortunately, the PDF is too large for me to attach it here, so we'll just send it manually by email to everyone who PMs me their email.

I would have loved to have a look into it, but I haven't heard anything since I asked about a copy per private message a few days ago. It's quite sad, I loved the idea ver much!

Ah, just found it in the spam folder... Sorry and thank you! I'll have a look! :)
