Embark on a near impos­si­ble jour­ney with a college graduate who started out with no back­ground of Go, who will quest to become a pro­fes­sional Go player before the age of 30. Here you will find all of the steps I take, my mis­takes, my suc­cesses, reviews of books and equip­ment, along with any advice I can pass on. Good luck to all my fel­low Go play­ers. May we meet across the board someday.

Longest OGS game

According to the study [ext] Statistics from a 27M game sample, he was a participant in [ext] the longest game ever "played" on OGS.

Ben began the game on 8 October 2014, against a beginner called Selim or sheers. On October 15, sheers requested to pause the game, saying that he was "totally swamped at work", and Ben paused it on the 17th, at the 44th move. sheers quit his account on the 24th.

The game remained paused until 19 May 2020, when Ben announced that he was "trying to clear up (his) game logs" and resumed it, after which sheers timed out on May 29. It had lasted 2,060 days.
