Would we play better if we close our eyes more during a game, as to step back from the shapes and moyo to boost brain power???..
Why do you keep deleting then reopening this thread?
i want to post this to see what people think, but i’m a little embarrassed at the same time as it seems a daft question. What do you think?
For brain power i dunno. But it could help maybe to take some distance.
It’s one of my favorite advice for beginners, take more distance from the board, have a more global look on the game.
thanks, I am glad you don’t find this a silly question, i feel it has helped me more recently to close my eyes and picture the josekis
Some say there are no silly questions in a forum, please feel free to ask.
such powerful scene, thanks for that!!
It can be good for your eyes too, watching a screen for too long time.
yeah that’s true also. I sat in a dark room for 10 minutes, eyes open, and could see all these colours swirling around, that must be all that screen time!!
Often we can get too focussed on local ideas. For games with a longer time limit, getting up to grab a drink at a key point can help you see the bigger picture. Not sure if closing your eyes will have the same effect but playing blind go is great for your visualisation training.
Yes, the short break aspect is my view on this matter. Blind Go is probably too far for me anyway!
Blind go is getting possible when both players have enough use of shapes, regular patterns… I would say like mid sdk, on a 9x9.
For a public activity like a promotion of a go club in a exposition, a simultaneous game is as impressive for the spectators and much more easier to play!
