Edit (19 Aug): Thanks for your support, everybody! It is now confirmed that I can board the flight on 24 August to Tokyo, and my live teaching game schedule up until then is now full. The offline reviews are still available, if you are interested!
This July and August I am briefly visiting Europe – mainly to …

Gokyō Shūmyō is one of the most famous collections of go problems, containing 520 classic tesuji problems compiled and published by Hayashi Genbi in 1812. Its contents are divided into the categories …
After a two-year break, this year there will again be a European Go Congress – this time in picturesque Vatra Dornei, Romania.

Happy New Year, folks!
As many of you will be happy to hear – we have had a good number of inquiries – the ngd Online League will restart on February 1 with a number of changes. Initially our plan was to restart already on January, so we’re sorry for the wait! (You can register here!)
First off, here …
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.
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!

At the time of writing, we have done 601 game reviews. 325 of these are by yours truly, with Oscar being the second most prolific teacher at 158 reviews. In …
Today at 1pm Helsinki time, Jeff, Antti, and Mikkgo will host the third ‘Go Jam’ on Mikkgo’s Twitch channel.
While the content of the stream is of course go-related, it is more geared towards the philosophical and psychological side of playing the game rather than particular patterns. Some topics prepared for this time are:
Towards the end of the stream, some Corona Cup 3 games will probably also be reviewed.
As usual, everybody is welcome to follow and participate!
The 3rd Corona cup, organised by ngd teacher Lukáš Podpěra, will be held from March 8 to April 20. This time, the tournament is part of the 2020 European Grand Prix as a bonus point c class tournament.
As usual, two of our other teachers, me and Jeff, will work in the tournament anti-cheating department to ensure fair play. …
