Gubi2000´s Personal Study Pages on Sensei´s Go Library

Please do not change these personal notes- I do appreciate any added comments instead!

Table of contents

Welcome dear Visitor, I use these personal pages to support my own learning efforts with some documentations. I am working out my personal beginner-level study plan here. I do hope this way of using this Wiki is in accordance with the guidelines. Whenever I generate any interesting content I will of course share it in the public part of the wiki. My first contribution was to share some high-quality go video lectures with comments, which you will find below.

Commented Video Lectures

This is my research for "high-quality" audio-visual lectures about the game of Go- all of them being commented in english. I also added those lectures to the page YoutubeLectures, which is sorted by subject and other criteria. You will find many more there, but for my taste the quality is sometimes not that good.

Hane blocks Tsuke by bending around it.

willemien: Hi I removed your edition at the ten thousand year ko this was because a long L group is not a mannen ko. a long L group is a position just likely lead to one. therefore i kept the link to the long L group. When editing it is important to distinguish between wat it is and where it (likely) leads to. An Atari is not a capture. (but do keep editing sensei library, but have an eye for details)
