Split Second Session

  • This method consists of showing a position for a very short time, basically.

  • There may be repetitions and there may be varying time intervals, according to the complexity of the position.

  • This can be used for spotting basic properties instantly, for Tsume Go, but also for opening positions and in fact for reading and such.

  • One can continue reading when the board is shown, this can help in memorizing and concentration and accuracy of reading or applying systematic ways.

  • To train memorization it also can be useful, reconstructing the position from memory, or do simple reading from memory, but the latter should only be applied, if you memorize about perfectly and can reconstruct that position easily.

  • It is crucial to start with very simple positions, like spotting Atari and such, I recommend getting used to this practice starting with very simple positions, always do it light and relaxed.

By now one needs a person to do the showing of the board, bigfatcat intends to write a go-software which will give means of studying this at home without partner for any given SGF. If there will be a client software for some go server, is another point.

bigfatcat showed this method on the KGS-GO-SERVER with audience and interaction once or twice.
