Keywords: Culture & History

In literature and game discussions one can often find the expression Modern Go. The qualification modern can have many meanings:

  • It can be used to make the distinction between the old era of the Go houses and the current practice of professional Go.
  • Ironically, it has also been used to mark the advent of the Korean professionals, who have revolutionized Go again, back to territorial thinking but sticking with the 4-4 point as an important asset in the opening.
  • Less common would be the usage of modern to denote the presence of computers, Go Servers and the Internet.
