Go, Igo, Weiqi, Baduk Go, Igo, Weiqi, Baduk. Kaz's original Igo-advice & fundamentals of Igo: To become a strong go player, "repetition" is the key.


To become a strong go player, "repetition" is the key.

To become a strong go player, "repetition" is the key.



Last time in my Go (wéiqí, baduk)lesson I said:

2. To become a strong Go (wéiqí, baduk)player,
you have to do Go drills of go problems
over and over again.

But you might not have Go-problem drills.

In that case, you read good Go-books
which teach basics of go.


But just reading good go-book is not good enough.

You have to read it and put the stones on the Go board over
and over again to make the
basic shapes ingraied into your mind.

For five dan players, you don't have to put the stones on
the go board. Just reading is good enough to remember it.

If you're a three-dan child, then you also don't have to
put stones on the Go board.

Usually children have an excellent memory and amazingly wonderful
understanding ability, which adults could never grasp.

So adults can not do the same thing as children learn...

BTW, that's why my teaching style towards adults is completely
different from my teaching style towards kids.

Let me go back to my second point and emphasize it:

2. To become a strong Go (wéiqí, baduk)player,
you have to do Go drills of go problems
over and over again.

The important thing is to practice the same thing over and over again.

"Repetition" is the key.


This is so important that I have to talk about it
again later.


If you don't learn basic foundations, what's going to happen?

If you never learn basics and develop your own way,
sooner or later, you just keep playing common amateur mistakes.

Once your common amateur mistakes become a habit of yours,
it's very difficult to get out of it.

How difficult is it?


Well, I'd say that it's as difficult as trying to stop smoking.

Playing common mistakes usually becomes so ingrained that you
have such a hard time getting out of it.

In Japan I'd say that a majority of amateur Go players never
pay attention to basics, so they keep making common mistakes
throughout their games.


The problem is that everybody makes the same mistakes.

Because everybody does it, common amateur mistakes often
work out really well, especially against weak players.

You know that weak players don't know how to take advantage of
common mistakes.

But common mistakes will never work strongers players with
a solid foundation of go.

If they play with a professional, common amateur mistakes
will be misrable. They will crash your stones... literally.

Your black stones will be shattered into pieces on the Go board.もうやだ〜(悲しい顔)


I'll talk about it more.
