Online League on break for November and December

Brief announcement: this year, November and December will be break months for the online league. We teachers will then have a short breather and also think of ways to improve the programme in 2022.

Currently it is still possible to join for the regular two months in September and October: the full option is €80 and the half option €50. After the September league starts, we take one-month subscriptions for October: these are €40 for the full option and €25 for the half option.

BesoGo viewer updated

Hi folks!

This is just an announcement to let you know that the BesoGo sgf viewer on this site has been slightly updated. There is a new feature: when inside a variation, you can press shift+left to immediately scroll back to the move where the variation branched off. This should make the reading of variations, and the subsequent navigation to the main line of the game slightly easier.

If the feature does not seem to work for you, make sure to make a hard refresh of the page, first (shift+f5).

Thanks to ronm for making this update possible!
