It has been a while since I’ve played a game in the local Go-club. So entering the familiar building and hearing the clacking of stones and Go related chatter kind of made me feel nostalgic. I found out that the Go Club Zürich now offers a course every week (presented by Lorenz Trippel [1d], Thomas Frech [2d] and Josef Renner [3d]). The range of topics covers game reviews, opening-theory and other things too.
Obviously I didn’t attend the first couple of courses but I might be able to obtain the SGF’s and publish them on the blog. I’ll let you guys know as soon as I’ve spoken to the organizers. However another course (presented by Li Ang [5p] took place a couple of days ago. The Chinese pro gave the participants some insight on various openings. Josef was so kind to record the lessons on both days (SGF’s originally published on Zuerigo.org). I’ve translated the first SGF to english, there is another one but I didn’t have the time so far to translate that one too. But rest assured that you’ll find it on the blog in foreseeable future. If you’re interested in Live-Go-Workshops by famous Pros you should also check out the Go Master Course 09 that will take place in Vienna and Paris from march to april and will be held by Takemiya Masaki [9p].
As promised here’s the second part of the workshop. This one was about the small chinese opening (again recorded by Josef Renner).
