Go, Igo, Weiqi, Baduk Go, Igo, Weiqi, Baduk. Kaz's original Igo-advice & fundamentals of Igo: One big difference between the way kids learn iGo and the way adults learn it.


One big difference between the way kids learn iGo and the way adults learn it.

One big difference between the way kids learn iGo and the way adults learn it.



I haven't finished writing some articles on the
U.S. Go Congress in 2008
and other articles on this blog. ふらふら

Have you ever thought about the differences between
the way kids learn iGo and the way adult learn it?


Many people know that kids' brain observe things

Kids just repeat the game and ask me "What should I do?"

So I can answer that with detailed explanations.

(If you as an adult have a hard time repeating
the game, please play on KGS. So you can
repeat it easily.)


But a surprisingly large number of adults ask me
abstract questions without ever showing me
a situation on the Go board.

What kind of abstract questions am I talking
about here?


Here are some examples:


1Some people ask me aji, the potentinal, works such and such,
and "Do you agree?"

2Some people tell me that they always play the opening
badly, and they want to improve it.
