Alphago new josekis


#1

Thanks (a lot!) @mark5000 for having collected these (see puzzles)
Surely I am not the only one who ask himself if I should go burn some of my go books but first I would like to know if our beloved professional players did plan or even start to write some wonderful commentaries on this new material.

Could we at least point where to read some detailed analysis?


#2

I’m not aware of any detailed analysis by anyone. Actually, I’m writing a book about this tentatively titled “mark5000’s Opening Manual.” It’s painstakingly slow to write, and I’m aiming for sometime in 2019. Until then, here’s some resources:


Discrepancy between AlphaGo Teach and Leela Zero
#3

That was a quick and detailed answer.
And your project is all what I hope.

I don’t always study from a joseki dictionary, I like to read it like a good story too. I missed already an update of Ishida, and even more now with Alphago

One of the largest resources on the subject is the Alphago vs. Alphago series on the Official AGA Youtube Channel. It also includes commentaries on the Lee Sedol and Ke Jie matches.

For french speakers, another excellent presentation by @Deodred that focuses on two josekis

It’s labelled #1 so I guess there’s more to come.

I would be really interested in some resources that help me understand the new alpga go fuseki in general.
When I play white I see a lot of large knights move enclosures and I’m never entirely sure how to handle them. On the other side, I tried playing the 3-4 6-3 and the 3-4 6-4 enclosures with black, but I’m not sure how to fully utilize it.


#8

Welcome to the club :slight_smile: I think that’s exactly why for years the pros have favored small knight enclosures.

See my link to the Alphago vs. Alphago commentaries. I recommend to start with the older commentaries as usually Michael Redmond doesn’t repeat the explanations.

btw two thumbs up for the Amateur blog on AlphaGo sequences, thanks @mark5000 for sharing.

I can’t check Facebook/YouTube but for the other ones, I did and it’s amazing. Thanks.
