You could think an Igo move for a long time sometimes when...

You could think an Igo move for a long time sometimes when...



There are exceptions!ひらめき

There are times when you have to think for a while
during a Igo game.



When?

Well, when you face a life-and-death problems in your game,
or a capturing race, or a tesuji to capture a big
group of stones, then you have to think carefully
and read moves through.
ちっ(怒った顔)

If you can't read the entire moves, then you have to give
up and play.ふらふら


But if you could read through, then you would want to spend
enough time to read all of them through, right?

In that case, you may have to think of your move
for a long time.

(If you play on the Internet, then you have a time limit,
so obviously you can't do that.)時計


At the end if you can't find the right answer, you need
to stick with your instinct, which comes from how much
you have studied basics.
ひらめき


Last but not least, in my experience generally
those amateur players who don't think for
a long time tend to learn faster than
those who think excessively or think each move
for a long time, assuming that these Go players
study the same amount of time.



So in a case of a life-and-death problem, or
a capturing race, or a tesuji to capture a big
group of stones in your game, you might want to read for 5
minutes.

10 minutes maybe be the maximum.

If you contemplate more than 10 minutes, then your
opponent gets upset, so I think 10 minute is a long
thinking...


Another exception is that if your opponent loves
to think for a long time, and both of you agree
to play a long game, then it's possible to think
for a long time.

I have a friend in Washington who is 5-dan
and who loves to think for a long time.

So in his case, fast games are not enjoyable.

I still think fast games is better, but
he's 5-dan, which means he is strong enough.

Also if he enjoys thinking, and he has Igo
friends who also like to think, then,
I'd say "Go head and play a long game!"


If you don't enjoy playing Igo, that's the worst case...もうやだ〜(悲しい顔)


BTW, today I read a very interesting Igo article in the
Nikkei Shimbun
, which is equivalent to the Wall Street
Journal in the States.

The Nikkei Shimbun sponsors the Oza Title.

There is a game between Iyama Yuta 8-dan pro and Huang Yih Tzuu 7-dan pro.
