If you keep up with the recent Go Teaching Ladder reviews, there was one done by Reid (5d AGA) possibly about a week or two ago. Reid’s reviews are usually something to behold, even for a comparitavely weaker player such as myself. This review in particular had some really good words of wisdom when it comes to this game. Read and observe carefully and maybe you’ll get to that next rank a little faster.
“It is important to recognize that your opponent is going to be sharing the board space with you. Keeping everything is just not in the nature of this game. The more you try to keep it all, the more your opponent can use it against you. Instead, you must let him have his share when he deserves it.”
Take it home with you!
