Howdy OGS’ers. Having discussed the idea to create some resources for novice players with mlopezviedma and xhu98, I’ve spent a few hours putting together a guide to the opening in OGS demo format. Now, I don’t claim to have any special knowledge about the opening. However, I have spent a good bit of time studying it, and basically every move comes from a pro game. There is nothing in it I have invented. (It’s so uncreative!) I hope one day I can invent my own opening ideas, but until then, here’s a guide for beginners as to what top pros tend to do in their own openings:
I will incorporate any useful modifications into the demo. Helpful criticism, snide remarks, and threats against the creator are also welcome. Enjoy!
Edit: this sgf preserves the markups in the original for offline-viewing.
