I need someone to help teach me!


#1

I’ve played the game a little bit now and understand the basics of the game, but I can’t seem to get any better just playing mindlessly against computers or other people that all really know what they’re doing. I was wondering if anyone would want to help me learn basic strategies and techniques of the game!

thanks

Do you have a preference for live vs correspondence? If you want to play a live game it would help to know what times you are available to play.

Out of all people to impersonate, I doubt this one is a good pick. xD

You should probably walk the path of every online Go player known to man:

Oh by the way, I know you asked for a teaching game but judging by your current game I doubt you know enough basics to benefit much from a teaching game. I’d compare it to asking for a lesson in writing prose when you have yet to learn the vocabulary.

To make the best use of people’s time, I suggest you at least complete the IWTG course and read RMG 1.

This is also to your own benefit, because very few people could actually offer a similarly good introduction, and many introduce mistakes and confound/confuse things when they try.

Thanks again! yea i went through an interactive tutorial and i do well on small predetermined games like that my issue comes with short sighted moves and large picture… just gotta practice and learn from my mistakes
