Dear ASR members,
dear League players, Rookies and Go friends !

pls take notice of the dates & time for the next ASR teaching games with Guo Juan (5P) and the winners of November + December league months:

(1) Monday, 23rd Jan 2017 – 02:00 pm UTC / 03:00 pm CET (Central European Time)
(2) Monday, 13th Febr 2017 – 02:00 pm UTC / 03:00 pm CET

(Rec.: Have a look at the November / December winners in case you missed it … )

The two events will be broadcasted live (audio) on KGS Go Server in the Advanced Study Room (you find this room under “lessons” in the “room list”).

… and also recorded as streamcast. – If you can’t join you could always rewatch the lessons (and the past ones) anytime, see ASR’s video archive

It took quite a long time to figure out the problem of the paralized crawler ( see post on 30/12/2016). Our IT geeks found it on the server in a sneaky dark bits & bites corner. “Better late than never”; the scoring system is finally back on track !

Game results + players lists for “January league” + “Rookie Challenge” are up again:

We (the ASR team) sincerely apologize for the inconveniences caused technically.

Despite the League system defects + Xmas holiday season the December league activity went better than expected, see statistics . – We thank you for your ongoing engagement, appreciate your loyality and Go passion.

With the repaired system, updated results tables and 425 registered ASR members take the chance now to intensify your Go studies in the next 9 days till end of the league month January (31st – 12:00 am). For Non-Rookies: Play minimum four (4) games per month to stay in the league.

Let’s have more gaming + reviewing again… as in 2017 we like to break the 2016 record (October) with 412 games and 83 active players very soon. 🙂

The whole ASR team wishes you all a delicious Epiphany holidays with French King Cake (La Galette de Rois) !

Warm greetings from Hangzhou (China)
