Our online league is aimed at people who have limited time to study, but would like to use it as efficiently as possible.

Depending on your chosen intensity option, you play either four or eight games during a time span of two months. All games get reviewed by our teachers, and the commentaries focus on explaining on a general level how to think about the shapes and whole-board positions that appear. To save your time, we also analyse each game with KataGo (200 playouts) in case you want to see how the ai would have played. You can read sample reviews here.

Pairings are rolled out every first and third weekend of a month, and you are free to join the league whenever you want. You can view the list of current participants here.

In addition to the game reviews, you can access other participants’ reviews from your subscription period, and a part of your participation fee is used to fund publicly open video lectures, held twice a month. Participants with the full (eight-game) intensity option also get a complementary coaching session with Jeff, where the participant can discuss the strong and weak points of their play as well as how to direct their studies in the future.

If you like what we are doing, you can opt to support us by 20 euro. In exchange, you can choose one of the following:

  • a correspondence teaching game with Antti on ogs (without commentary),
  • access to the reviews of the online league from a two-month period, or
  • three months of Antti’s kifu newsletter.
