Studying and stuff

Yeah, well… what can I say? I was kind of busy. University and stuff is taking up a lot of time. They tend to urge you to do projects and homeworks and stuff, basically things that’ll either shorten your lifespan considerably or at very least take away most of your Go-time.

Anyway, Cho Seok-Bin’s workshop is over and thanks to my cramped schedule I couldn’t attend even one of the lectures he gave *sob*. However the guys from the Zürich Go Club were nice enough to transcribe all lessons and make them accessible in PDF. Remember, if you intend to participate at the Swiss Go Championship in 2 weeks, I suggest you better study all of this thoroughly (Josef will shatter you otherwise 😛 ). I’ll try to get my hands on the original SGF’s or create own ones to upload to the “Reviews & Lectures”-section. Until then, enjoy the PDF’s.

Cho Seok-Bin workshop Days 1 and 2

Guess what, there’s even more! Heretix published a video of commented pro-game with English subtitles on GoDiscussions.com. Here’s what he writes about it.

After many hours of hard work, i’ve finally finished my first video project for the Go community. I’ve added English subtitles to a video of a Chinese professional (Hua Yi Gang 8-dan) commenting on the 6th LG semi-final match between Lee Chang Ho and Cho Hun Hyun, played in 2002.

Comments and feedback for the video much appreciated. 🙂

Its my hope that this will kickstart a fansubbing community for Go videos, similar to the ones we have for anime now. There’s a treasure trove of Go videos all over the Internet, just waiting to be translated and brought to an even bigger audience!

If you’re willing to help, please contact me by sending me a PM here, or looking for me on KGS.

Edit: Making one video like this takes me days of work, and its unlikely that I can do it again unless I get some help.

The duration of the video is about 25 minutes and it’s really worth watching. It can be downloaded on Google-Videos (MP4-file) or viewed online on youtube (part 1, 2, 3)… or you can just watch them here ^^
