Donations for prizes are greatly appreciated. We need your help to keep offering prizes. We need your support for audio go lessons and specific prizes for Go studies (e.g. Go books, Go apps). – We  always like to offer monthly more teaching games than only one as it fits best the spirit of the ASR League and needs of its league members. – If you are able to support please visit our support & donation page or contact the ASR team directly.

ASR past sponsors, supporters and still friends:

BadukMovies was a site which had started in 2013 and offered weekly screen casts about various Go topics. Also it featured a database of professional games with a pattern search function. It was produced by Peter Brouwer (6d) and Kim Ouweleen (aka Murugandi 4d), both from Holland. Initially all lectures were free, over the time also professionally dictated content required a fee to view. The project is closed since two years. The last teaching video was uploaded on 17th February 2015. All videos now are free to watch on Youtube here.

We would like to give special thanks to David Ormerod from GoGameGuru for donating subscriptions to English Baduk TV during the past.

Another big thanks to Kim Seung-jun (Blackie) 9p and Diana Koszegi 1p from the Blackie’s International Baduk Academy for supporting the ASR project.
