Any suggestions on website to study Joseki? I noticed Josekipedia and GoBase and would like to get your veteran’s input which is better. Note, I don’t really care about the pro games etc at GoBase, at least at this point.
I wish their board UI is as pretty as OGS.
That’s a tricky question. Unfortunately most databases are outdated, as in the past two years refutations have been found to traditional joseki, and new joseki have surfaced.
I would recommend to start with @mark5000’s compilation of AlphaGo joseki. Other than that, your best bet is probably Youtube and blogs, especially content published in the second half of 2018, where people discuss the evolution that happened in the past two years. You can search this forum for Youtube channels in English, then there are many more in Asian languages.
For the record, my favorite online reference for studying joseki is (was) Sensei’s library
Thanks! I really look for easy to learn, not as a reference, easier to see different variance etc, and as long as the joseki is legit at some point in time. At 3k, I don’t really worry about the latest and greatest.
Well, that’s exactly why I warned you that refutations have been found to joseki that were considered legit just two years ago. It’s not just about fashion.
I made an edit when you were replying.
I guess one of my points here is that a joseki database is not the easiest way to learn. Just like reading a dictionary is not the best way to learn a language.
Thanks! Merry Christmas!
Now you read my mind. I am really looking for a place/tool to learn a little Joseki and help me visualize and memorize a little faster than books.
This will help.
