Baduk World

    Keywords: Online Go

[ext] BadukWorld is another Korean go/baduk server. It features access in Korean, Chinese, Japanese and English, and the main code is written in Java (thus runs on almost any platform).

It seems to be a very small server, compared to Korean standards (logging in, I almost always saw 800-1000 players). The highest I saw personally was a 10D player.

The server seems to be oriented towards expatriates. Playing fee is $10 per year --- really nothing, but they only accept Korean credit cards (and for expatriates, it suggest to ask some friend to pay). Software is relatively lousy; for some of the functions (i.e., chat!) to work you must install a Windows-only addon.

You can observe games as a guest.

Any comments welcome, Helger.

FredK: They seem to have tons of intriguing link, mostly in Korean. I clicked on some and got problem applets, etc. Here is an English language list of links at their website: [ext] Links.
