Redmond Reviews: New AGA video commentary series launches

Notizie AGA - 16 ore 41 min fa

download SGF file

This game commentary file accompanies Redmond’s Reviews, Episode 1: Artem Kachanovskyi 1p v. Alexandr Dinerstein 3p, the first in a brand-new series of AGA video commentaries with Michael Redmond 9P and Chris Garlock, Managing Editor of the American Go E-Journal. In March 2016 the two teamed up to provide live commentary on the historic 5-game match between Lee Sedol 9P and AlphaGo — available on the AGA’s YouTube Channel  – and now plan to do go video commentaries on a regular basis. Each video commentary — produced by Michael Wanek — will be accompanied by sgf commentaries that will include comments and variations by Redmond, enabling the video commentary to focus on the major points in a shorter format. We hope that you enjoy this new series and look forward to hearing your feedback; email journal@usgo.org with your comments or questions. The AGA is also currently working on producing video commentaries by other professionals on Master games; stay tuned for updates on those soon.

Go Review: Fairbairn’s “Meijin of Meijins: The Life and Times of Honinbo Shuei”

Notizie AGA - Lun, 20/02/2017 - 23:24

Reviewed by Roy Schmidt

Go translator and historian John Fairbairn draws upon his phenomenal knowledge of go history and his collection of classic works to craft “Meijin of Meijins: The Life and Times of Honinbo Shuei,” an entertaining and educational book covering the life of one of the strongest members of the Honinbo “family,” Honinbo Shuei. Shuei has long been the most admired and emulated player amongst go professionals in Japan. He gave Honinbo Shusai black in every game they played, and won a solid majority of them. It is a marvel that he became so strong, because during his lifetime, the go world in Japan was thrown into turmoil with the abolishment of government support by the new Meiji apparatus. How the Honinbos and other go families coped with their reversal of fortunes makes for a good read.

With a grand total of just three diagrams in the book, this is not the book for those interested in reviewing Shuei’s games. But if you want a taste of the inside workings of the go community during the late 1800s up to 1908, this is an absolute jewel. There are some organizational problems with the narrative, with some repetition of events – perhaps because the book is pulled from a larger e-book (which does contain commented games) with “light editing.” But overall, the writing is excellent and for fans of go history, I highly recommend this book. It’s published using Amazon’s instant-printing process, which offers quality comparable to mainstream paperback go books with an amazingly low price ($9.99).

Chiamate Internazionali 2017

Home Page sito FIGG - Ven, 17/02/2017 - 11:50

Nel 2017 la FIGG sarà chiamata a selezionare rappresentanti italiani per i consueti tornei internazionali (WAGC, KPMC) ma quest'anno anche per il World Amateur PairGo Championship.

Le selezioni per i tornei WAGC e KPMC si terranno come al solito rispettivamente durante i mesi febbraio/aprile e giugno/agosto e seguiranno la normale procedura tramite la classifica Punti Viaggio:

http://www.figg.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=869:classifiche-dei-punti-viaggio-aggiornate-settembre-2016&catid=71&Itemid=301&lang=it

Si invitano i giocatori interessati a cominciare a pensare se partecipare o meno alla selezione in modo da velocizzare i tempi. Non sono ancora disponibili date o luoghi dei tornei WAGC e KPMC per l'edizione 2017, tuttavia dovrebbero seguire date e luoghi simili agli anni passati.




La selezione per il World Amateur PairGo Championship, che si terrà a Tokyo il 2/3 dicembre, seguirà invece le regole indicate dal Regolamento Agonistico. Le coppie che avessero intenzione di partecipare alla selezione per la coppia italiana sono pregate di cominciare a pensarci e mandare le candidature all'indirizzo cf@figg.org.




Inoltre, si informano i giocatori della possibilità di selezionare una coppia ufficiale italiana per il Pair Go Europeo 2017 che si terrà i primi di Aprile a Strasburgo, che uno dei maggiori criteri per la selezione al il World Amateur PairGo Championship (conquistando i punti PairGo europei).




http://pairgo.gostrasbourg.fr/



Dati i tempi ristretti, si pregano le coppie interessate ad essere la coppia ufficiale italiana a mandare le candidature quanto prima all'indirizzo cf@figg.org. La partecipazione al torneo è libera, ma solo una coppia per nazione riceve i punti PairGo europei e ha diritto a benefici economici. Tali punti, utili per la selezione al torneo mondiale, sono però inscindibili dalla coppia.





Un'ulteriore selezione della rappresentante italiana è prevista per il torneo femminile europeo che si terrà a Odessa, in Ucraina, dal 19 al 20 agosto 2017:




http://www.ewgc2017.org.ua/





Per tutti i tornei per cui sono previsti benefici o rimborsi economici valgono le regole della federazione sull'importo da corrispondere alla federazione (vedi dettagli sulla franchigia).

Candidature aperte per il CI 2017

Home Page sito FIGG - Ven, 17/02/2017 - 11:25

proposta, contenente almeno: sede, costi e date plausibili.

Tennessee Kids Power Up

Notizie AGA - Gio, 16/02/2017 - 14:30

“I taught two classes  at Whitsitt Elementary school on Power Monday,’ reports Shawn Ray from Tennessee. “Power Monday is an event held once a month to teach kids new subjects or ideas. At the end of both classes, the kids were begging me to come back on the next Power Monday. This is my second time at Whitsitt and both times have gone very well. The picture is of kids playing 2v2 capture go. I only had one hour to teach so I decided to start with capture go and put them in teams (they really enjoy working in teams). I must thank everyone who supports the American Go Foundation! Without the AGF’s grants and equipment, I would not be able to teach in after school programs as much as I do,” adds Ray. - Paul Barchilon, EJ Youth Editor. Photo by Shawn Ray.
