I use this page as my full profile, because KGS has a 1,000 character limit. I’m LGSam, the Lawful-Good Questionnaire Extraordinaire! (I was LeGoSam?, but that one is deranked (ask me about it). Anyway, now it has good musics on it, check 'em out!)

I’ve been playing Go since April 27th, 2018. I’m a member of the Open Study Room Team, the administration group in one of the greatest online Go communities. Check it out sometime: [ext]

The strongest Go player should aim to win only just.

A true knight of the goban makes plays that are noble and global. A play that is noble is one that has high moral principles, so they strive to do the best that they can, even if that means sacrifice later on. Not always, of course, but when the situation that calls for selflessness appears, they will do what they must. If a person believes whole-heartedly in the Golden Rule, AKA "Treat others the way you want to be treated", then they will always try to treat others the way they would want to be treated. I always think of the stones of opposite colors as equal intentions, to provide and support for their own, misunderstanding that the other people are trying to do exactly the same thing. So if you play nobly throughout the entire match, you are not only providing for your own, but not obliterating the other side. To not obliterate the other side, as if one can understand that each side is only trying to provide for their own, one can understand that yes, there is conflict, but that there can also be enough for both; so if one understands this, one can appreciate winning by very little. That is winning as the strongest player. So if there must be a winner and a loser, if one simply understands the needs of both, they will both have enough. Do you ever feel as though you are creating a bit of history between these two communities, thrust into an open world, trying to provide for themselves? These two communities, made up of stones that are entirely alive at your fingertips, do much of the same that the best of all people do, the best of all communities, all families, do.

I’m not going to lie, I like fighting in Go. I’m also not very serious about Go. But if I were… my aim would be to be at the level where I can win every match, only just.
