Scott Jankowski: We just started working on this page, so it may be a while before we finish all that we want to do with it. Coming soon will be the class schedule, and first-hand descriptions of the daily life here at KBC from some of the students. Enjoy.

Phelan: Let us know if you need help editing it, adding pictures, etc. :)

Scott Jankowski: Ok, thanks Phelan! :)

Vincent: Is ko or seki an acceptable result for black in the random problem you posted or must he unconditionally kill white?

Scott Jankowski: Ko or seki is not good enough. Black must kill unconditionally. Tip: Read. Don't believe your instincts. To solve this, you can't just 'feel' it out. Place the stones one after another in your mind until you find the answer.

Uwe Rieger?: I think that problem isn't that hard. I (as a 5 Kyu) needed a few minutes to solve it (as Scott said, reading is the key). The first move looks a little bit weird to me.

Scott Jankowski: Wow Uwe Rieger! not bad. That problem was a 2d problem from our life and death book. Not easy to see in your mind. Try this one now, ok? This is a bit more difficult.

Phelan: Scott, someone asked in the forum for this page who is the King in King's Baduk Center.

Scott Jankowski: Good question Phelan! I honestly don't know. I'll talk to the CEO of King's Baduk? for more details. Give me a few days, and I should have an answer.

AnonLinguist: These are nice problems. They have a wrong answer you must avoid. I really like it when tsumego have these little traps in them. It keeps you alert and minimizes complacency. Trusting blind instinct is a bad idea, and these problems show you why.

Scott Jankowski: Sorry guys, I've been up to my neck in work, so I haven't been keeping up with this site. I'll give it some attention as soon as possible.
