27 October Cho U and Iyama Yuta played in 2nd game of 60th Oza final
Go as a reflection of who we are
Looking back now, I would never be able to deny how wonderful the game of go is. I’m not part of the elite, but I have carved my own path to get where I am today. And by living it, I think I came to an understanding.
Many people would draw the obvious relation between improvement in go and the way you play. “Wow look at this move… I would have never thought of that… This is why he (or she) is so good…” But I think that we lose a whole side of the story by looking this way.
In Go, there are many aspects of the game in which we can develop. That makes it hard to know where to start. But, if you are between 20 kyu and 5 kyu, and you’re looking to improve your game. Opening theory made easy, by Otake Hideo, will help lead you to the next level.
I made this post for Lee Hajin, to show her how she can upload her games very easily and post them at twitter if she want.
There is full screen button in bottom right corner of the flash player. I recommend to push it ^_^
Video is shared on the screencast.com. You may need to wait a moment after pushing play bottom to download flash player. I sorry for trashy mic. This was my 1st screencast. Next time I will do better
Tesuji is a book one can’t emphasize enough for the progress in the game of Go. Its clear structural approach in teaching Tesujis by using chapters with the different field of&ndsp;applications makes it a good book for both a Tesuji reference and for studying.
Hello again, this is Whiteboard Sunday #5. We’re slowly coming to the end of our topic — the “First Joseki”. There are many more variations, but soon let’s move on to something else. What will it be? You can ask for joseki, openings, direction of play or any area where you’d like to be more comfortable.
Dan players may not learn as much from this column, but kyu players should benefit. In other words, this is for you kyu! Please leave your requests in the comment section below the article.
Hi everyone, we’re in the 4th edition of Whiteboard Sunday. Last month I started this new column on Haengma — but I don’t want to publish only short lectures on how to play baduk. I want to publish baduk book reviews and tournament/event reports. For this reason, I want you to join the Haengma team. You can help me build this website! I’m open to any ideas. If you are interested, please leave a comment or send me an email.
Welcome to the 3rd edition of Whiteboard Sunday. You didn’t write in the comment section what you wanted to see next, so I’ll continue analyzing the first joseki in the next few articles. This joseki is one of the most often played, so mastering it, will give you an advantage in real games.

Hello guys and girls Haengma is changing dramatically! It will have more tutorials and interesting columns.
The first new column will be called Whiteboard Sunday. Why Whiteboard Sunday? Because I won’t use Eidogo in this column, but instead I will make black and white Diagrams. I think this is a better way to teach. Every Sunday I’ll post about some small topic and give one problem to solve in the following week.
I can’t find any words to describe what happens yesterday. Whole Polish nation is in big sorrow.
Haengma won’t be updated in next two weeks or maybe even month until I will reconcile with the loss.
9-12 March, Japan, China and Korea teams play in last stage of 11th Nongshim Cup. Before they start, recent result was really good for China. Korea and Japan had only one player and China had 3 members. Japan termination was sure, but because Korea had some changes team had Lee Changho, who is famous of his nickname “invincible” in the Nongshim Cup.
6 March, Lee Changho 9p and Hong Kipyo 4p played in 1st game of 53rd Kuksu final. For Hong Kipyo this is first time and important test of strength and stamina. On other side for Lee Changho this final is also important. Kuksu is one of the most important titles in the Korea.
