I play at KGS now as Tasselhof. I used to play at Copenhagen go club from time to time, but i have moved and is is now a little to far away.
24 April: It appears that slate has killed shell (se below). :( Black wins...
13 january 2008: The /rules as I would make them.
14 December: I have got a new computer that I bring to the university. This alows me to once again take a game around lunchtime most days. As the graph shows i am tickling 5k now. Nice to be more consistenly back at go.
7 December: A litle picture of my girlfriends two fish, Slate and Shell:
13 november: I'd like to make a /Go Board With Levitating Stones some day...
11 october: Didn't play much during the summer months, my rank inflated too 6k. When i started playing i imediately dropped to 8 due to rust. Just recently regained that 6k though.
19 march: I now usually take a play around lunchtime most days. 7k by today. Recently reread FearOfLosing which helped me. No reason to worry about the rank, if I learn it will rise sooner or later. Started to do some tsumego at goproblems.com
KGS rating graph:
15? Feb: 8k.
1 feb 2007: Has played quite a bit. Dropped to 11k, but have now recently risen to 9k.
19 jan 2007: I have reversed the previous updates so they now show the oldest last. Another game against a rankbot, now I'm 10k when is this going to end?
18 jan 2007 another game, [12k?]
16 jan 2007: Long overdue update. Played once in a while at KGoK in the las year. And once in a while with players I taught myself. But have had long times away from go too. I have moved away from the club a few months ago sadly, but yesterday I began at KGS. Through three games, my rank went from [20k?] to [19k?] to [18k?] to [13k?] I think 13k is not far from my actual rank now.
16 nov 05: I havent been around much since my computer doesn't work well, and I havent been playing much on the net. But I've been visiting KGoK a bit and been taugth quite a lot, I think my strengh is around 15 kuy now.
Also I've managed to create interest in go at the institute, quite a lot of people have started to play. This of course mean that I have been playing 35k players a lot which have been bad for my play i periods away from KGoK and the net.
22 aug 2005: Promoted to 21k on panda IGS. Won a nine handi game against a 3d.
19 aug 05: I have won 4 and lost 1 against 22k players on IGS, some by more than a hundred points. I migth be stronger than I think...

Beginner. At the time writing (june 05) around 23 kyu I think.
HCØ Go: I will be trying to start some Go activity at the institute where I work. I've made some posters that I'll print and hang up once I've found a date. Then I hope some people will show up so that I can get some real-life opponents.
Tas: Okay, it wasn't that clear. The point was not as much to start a go club, as too spread the knowlegde of the game, especially among people I see every day.
I hadn't been able to find a go club in Copenhagen, but frankly I haven't tried real hard either. Thank you very much for the links. I'll check it out. If I mannage to get some people interested in the game, I migth bring them to the club then.
Tas: As the "diary" says, I did.
Here's the result of a game I played against my farther today. He has never played go before so I gave him a masive handicap of 25. In the beginning I was able to win some ground, but his play improved through the game. If we had had more time I would have tried an invasion in the lower left corner though.
I know this is not the way to play beginners. But tried for curiosity's sake. I had to overplay to an eksteme degree, and play all kinds of TrickPlay I could think of; this could really be a source of BadHabits
I don't remember if I went so far as to play SelfAtari, hoping he wouldn't see it.
Tas: I know... since I was no better of in the top invasion, which took quite a lot of territory, before it was finally shut in. 25 handicap is a lot! But we ran out of time and desided to end it there. The game was by no means serious anyway.
With an invasion there i would not stick to the joseki though. I would go for more territory.
nachtrabe: I mentioned this on the NNH page but I should probably mention it here as well: If you would like, send me an SGF and I'll be happy to review it for you.
Tas: Not much point in reviewing this one, and I didn't record it anyway. Just wrote down the final position before I packed it away. But thanks anyway, and you'll be welcome to review other games in the future.
