While preparing for the tournament, i play through a lot of gamerecords. Commercial software like SmartGo or MoyoGo comes with a large collection of Kifu, however both progs are not for free. So the questions is: Where can I get Kifu for free?
Many Kifu of recent tournaments can be found on EidoGos “games-section”. However if you want to run a pattern-search through a certain collection, you will have to download a program with the respective function (like Drago or Stonebase). So here are, for you dear reader ;), compiled a bunch of useful gamecollection at your service. If you know any other collections, please don’t hesitate and post them in the comments!
- Stonebase Game Collection: more than 160 MB of games! However most of the players Name are written in Chinese.
- Cho Chikun Collection: Cho Chikun is a japanese 9p, formerly entitled “the devil”. His games are said to be very educational.
- Hikaru no Go Collection: Most of the Kifu from the games played in Hikaru no Go.
