According to the Secret History of the Mongols, the Pilgrims played Go with the Natives.

Happy Thanksgiving.

When playing on OGS, especially live tournament games, I like to play the game on the board :slight_smile: This is a borrowed set from our club (which is actually under my care)

Also we had two tournaments - one in Toruń and one in Bydgoszcz. Pictures will be aviable soon but you can check our Facebook pages:

What kind of stones are those?


#85

Looks like yunzi-style stones, all turned upside down. :slight_smile: If you follow the second facebook link, there is another photo with the same stones… and some REAL stones as well.

@calantir and @xhu98 playing a late night game after picking xhu98 up from the airport.

…It was over quickly. :smile:


#87

@xhu98 SMASH!


#88

Should I call calantir reckless to play xhu without handi stones? Very nice looking Goban!


#89

They played again last night and @xhu98 actually had to stop and think a few times. Lol.

@calantir is a fast learner and xhu98 is an excellent teacher , so TAKING ALL BETS as to whether cal can break through to 1 dan by the end of this visit. :wink:

edit Also, thanks! Re: goban, it’s bamboo. We got it to go with the bamboo bowls (and yunzi stones) calantir won at the last MD Open (go tourney).


#90

Ugh. I guess that means I need to study more.

/me shakes fist at sky


#91

/me looks to @xhu98 for a teaching game or two… :wink:


#92

BTW, what rank the dog is? :dog:


#93

Don’t know his rank, but he always finds a spot on the bed that gives him influence in all four directions.


#94

He doesn’t look like he thinks he can learn something by watching mere amateurs playing… must be pretty strong :wink:


#95

@xhu98 playing post-brunch simul games with @calantir and @cloudbrows at our little go get-together. Anyone else spending holiday break time on some extra playing?


#96

My old homemade board (just varnished plywood and a hinge!) - it was hard to get a goban in Ireland back then, and I was a poor student. :o)


#97

Played a teaching game with a friend of mine from college a couple days ago. It was great to play Go in person for the first time since Congress. :smiley:


#98

@calantir and @xhu98 and me playing ZenGo. Somehow, black won overwhelmingly. (o_O)?


#99

To clarify: I did not touch that bottle of beer in the photo. :sweat_smile:
