I forgot to say, I can’t play right now and I also strongly prefer correspondence games. But thanks for the offer!

You can challenge me whenever you want for a correspondence 25x25 with comfortable timesetting.

Are you suggesting Thue-Morse on 25x25? :o

Of course! Want to play? I have justifications for that size choice on the TMG thread if you’re dubious.

It might be a bit taxing for me…

I’d be up for a 25x25 TMG game, but I’m a bit short on time lately…

I’ve never tried 25x25 Go. Frankly, the complexity scares the crap out of me. Have people developed joseki for the 25x25 board? I’m not even sure the traditional corners, sides, center, play order is correct strategy on a board this big. I’m so used to thinking 3rd-line=territory, 4th-line=influence, I’m sure it would affect my play.

I’m pretty sure that the knowledge we have accumulated on 19x19 will be still very useful on 25x25 in some way.
Now it’s pretty exciting to have new perspectives to explore. It’s great to have that many games and I hope this will set some hypoteses and even theories to help how to manage these larger board(s).

Three games left, pretty late into middle game already. We might be playing the next round in a couple of months.

Two games are pretty interesting, the third goes to the “how do I tell my opponent the game is over” topic.

Hey, we have last game left.

Anyone dares to count?

Edit: I mean, if black accepts that their giant black group is dead, they should resign.

Seems like the 3rd round just started.

Looks like I’ll be either up against @_KoBa or against @yebellz next, if I win.

  • Yes, interesting observation. I recently started a 37x37 game (on the Little Golem Game Server) and my opponent (hypercube) is playing for the huge center, and I’m playing in a more traditional (19x19) style of play (get territory in corners first, then extend down the side) but we are only 32 moves into the game, so I won’t know the results for about a thousand more moves… We are making about 4 or 5 moves a week, so about 200 more weeks… I’m about to finish my first 37x37 game, but in that game we both played in a more traditional manner (IMO)… So, I’m wondering (thinking about) the same.
