All good suggestions. I could probably manage an hour of study plus one ranked game a day, but I can understand that some people can’t spare this amount of time. Splitting option 1 into one ranked game and either tsumego or pro game memorization may be a good idea. Can anyone recommend a good sgf editor for Linux? I am using Quarry at the moment, but when I tried to memorize a pro game it created a new branch in the game tree even when I replayed a move correctly.
Does the “play a lot” option include reviewing? I review the majority of my games using Leela.
Teaching games and reviews from a higher ranked player is a good idea if we can find enough teachers and reviewers.
I haven’t tried playing Leela at 19x19 yet. Would you suggest even games or a large handicap?
There are plenty of youtube videos available. I’m not sure how useful watching a Nick Sibicky video, for example, a day would be though for someone at my level.
Anyway, I’m happy to be assigned to any study group. Are you going to make the selection at random?
