That’s pretty cool. Thanks for teaching me the word salmiac (“ammonium choloride, a white crystalline salt used a flavouring agent in some types of liquorice”) as well.
My money is on Mitsunari. Currently at 467. This is not a name&shame because…
To misquote Shakespeare’s ‘King Lear’, “Mitsunari is more timed-out against than timing-out.”
Timeout wins: 20.9%
Timeout losses: 3.8%
Hats off to Mitsunari.
Mitsunari is also notoriously slow when it comes to playing moves for correspondence games. His games tend to last for months/years.
He employs the unique tactic of waiting so long to play a move that his opponent forgets what is happening in the game.
Of course. can’t be caugth stealing
Nice. I did not know you had this talent. It’s fun to learn new things about people.
Hmmm… I think I noticed it in some tournament…
Awesome pic @AdamR. I love that it’s your own work.
As for ‘You do not understand And you never will’, I often feel that way with Go so; perfect.
actually, i would like a big chocolate cake in the form of a Goban with black and white stones.
I love correspondence games for many reasons.
One of them is that each time I open an ongoing game I can look at it with fresh eyes and try to find the best move without messing with “what was I trying to do with that previous move?”
Well, I admit that sometimes it can be a little confusing… forgetting to take a ko, for example.
