ASR event – Guillaume’s LOST Reviews (ASR live channel – 05/18/2017)

This is a special ASR event which was held by Guillaume Douron (ASR team manager) for the first time live on ASR’s YouTube channel.


(Rec.: Actually because of some technical reasons (ip-ban / IP block by goKGS server) – probably because of using VPN to overcome China’s Great Firewall – the reviews had to be re-recorded offline (again). The ASR Team is working (and already testing) a robust solution for the future (probably then outside of goKGS). We apologize for the inconveniences/delay.)

The six games being reviewed by Guillaume (4d CWF) were played in the monthly ASR League of May 2017.

The main issue coming out from those games: lack of Go fundamentals. – It is typical for Western players because Go is not deeply rooted in their culture (compared with Go in Korea, Japan and China). Most players are learning Go by themselves – at a later age … while Asians have access to Go schools with top Professional as teachers at the early age of 3 years old.

Not knowing fundamentals is like jumping into a lake without having learned how to swim !

Therefore these game reviews focus on important situations giving insights about opening patterns, fighting shapes and techniques (tesuji-s).
