Computer Go demystified: An interview with Martin Müller | Go, Baduk, Weiqi ~ Board Game | Scoop.it

A lot of Go players are interested in computer Go and, especially after the recent Man vs Machine match between John Tromp and Zen19, many people have questions about it.

Go Seigen is my Idol

Go Seigen is my Idol | Go, Baduk, Weiqi ~ Board Game | Scoop.it

"He played like the birds fly: swift and light. Suddenly the position could get frozen though, and then one would get a glimpse of the universe of variations hidden below the sky that Wu had spanned in the earlier stages."


--- A friend (Jan van der Steen) on Go Seigen's (Wu's) game

 

Go Seigen is my idol. For two simple reasons: (1) He won games. (2) He won games in his unique manner. Always.

Honinbo Shuei

Honinbo Shuei | Go, Baduk, Weiqi ~ Board Game | Scoop.it

Honinbo Shuei has long been esteemed by other professionals, even outside Japan.

 

But who was Honinbo Shuei?

 

Phrases such as the 'Meijin of Meijins' are bandied about.

 

Takagawa Kaku even took up a professional career on the strength of having acquired a set of his collected games.

 

Yet it has never been quite to clear to amateurs why he is so highly regarded...

Huge kill: Lee Sedol vs Qiu Jun

Huge kill: Lee Sedol vs Qiu Jun | Go, Baduk, Weiqi ~ Board Game | Scoop.it

This game is from the second round of the 9th Chunlan Cup. It’s between Lee Sedol (9p) and Qiu Jun (9p).

 

In this game there was a huge life and death battle and an enormous group was killed. It’s really rare to see such a huge group get chased and captured in top pros’ games, so I hope you to enjoy watching it.

Perhaps you are familiar with logic puzzles involving hats. No? For example, imagine there are 10 prisoners and 10 hats. Each prisoner is assigned a random hat, either red or blue, but the number of each color hat is not known to the prisoners...

Na Hun overcomes his weakness.

 

[Korea Price Information Cup]

  


Na Hun who was borned in 1995 in Korea has got people’s attention since he became a pro. He is very strong in judgment and end game which makes him have high winning rate when the game goes closed. But his weakness is that he has low winning rate against players who is strong in reading. Especially Na Hun has bad results against players like Kang YuTak who pushes opponent with accurate reading and power. 

Na Hun won against Kang YuTak by resign with white in 9th Korea Price Information Cup on 13th July. Kang YuTak knows Na Hun’s weakness and pushed him from the beginning with reading. And the game went as Kang YuTak wanted to be. But Kang YuTak lost to see whole board while Na Hun judged accurately. When Kang YuTak succeeded in capturing Na Hun’s big group, Na Hun sacrificed it and made big territory on the other side. This shows why Na Hun is so strong in judgment.


Kim YoungSam 9Dan commented that Na Hun’s judgment is so accurate like Lee ChangHo 9Dan and Park YoungHun 9Dan. But he can’t become top pros with only one this talent. He should improve other areas to become top pros in the future.


○● Kim HyongWoo won against Choi ChelHan


After this game, there was a game between Kim HyongWoo and Choi ChelHan. Kim HyongWoo isn’t a new player in Korea but he is not very famous before. But he won against Kang DongYun and this game won against Choi ChelHan 9Dan which surprised people. 

Kim HyongWoo did not behind against Choi ChelHan from the beginning and decided the center as he wanted to be and arranged the game well. Choi ChelHan 9Dan failed to be in round 8 as he lost two players Park SeongChel and Kim HyongWoo. Kim HyongWoo will meed Park SeongChel to get a ticket for round 8.
