A Go Player

One man's fascination with the world's best game

Tuesday, December 21, 2004


I just hit 16kyu on DGS. Sure, I'll lose some games here coming up, and probably a little rank here and there, but I can't believe it. It's a mark that I am improving.
You know what gave me the last jump? Believe it or not, it was Hikaru No Go. In episodes 25-26, Fujiwara-no-Sai, the ancient Go master, tells Hikaru not to be scared of the tip of his sword and back down, but to fight back.

I've been applying that lately, and it seems to help. Push instead of pulling back.

Single-digit-kyu? I've got 6 months to make you mine!!!
