Since the number of Igo visitors is decreasing右斜め下, I'm thinking
about moving my "US Go Congress" to a different blog...ちっ(怒った顔)

I think I should focus on just giving advice in this Igo
(Weiqi, Baduk) blog
...

The other day, one of the Igo players told me his concernsがく〜(落胆した顔)
about Igo and asked me for advice.


Here is his email ( I got his permission to put it on my Igo
blog):

---------------------------------

When I was last studying go, many years ago,
I played as an AGA 5 kyu, and decided to try
playing at 4.

I quit shortly thereafter, but I hope I am
still near 4 kyu.

Now that my son is learning I feel deeply
interested in Igo again. I want to overcome
the blocks which have prevented me from
becoming a stronger player.

There are some issues of temperament.

Although I love Igo and am awakened and
delighted whenever I play, I take it too seriously.

I don't play enough, or playfully enough.
I take too long with my moves.

Consequently I've been too shy to play in public,
or online - but I will overcome these bad tendencies!

I want to learn to play quickly, intuitively
and boldly, to experiment and be willing to
lose, but still play in a way that I can be proud of.

Can you help me to understand go more deeply,
and to play with greater spontaneity and courage?

I should not place such a burden on you,
for these are my responsibility.

Because you already are a respected teacher,
I want you to understand how seriously
I wish to progress.

Here is my email responding to his concerns:

That sounds reasonable. You should be able to
get back to 4 kyu fairly easily as long as you
study properly.

Wonderful!!! I'll teach you, and you'll teach him. :)

That's not good.

But I perfectly understand know how you feel.

Believe it or not, I used to be one of them. ふらふら

As a kyu player...
