The Dim Sum Cafe -- Short Go Video Thread

Dim sum (…) is a large range of small dishes that Cantonese people traditionally enjoy in restaurants for breakfast and lunch: (…) delicately made food items, savory or sweet, to complement their tea.

Although dim sum is a Chinese meal, it is a communal dining and social experience; (…) large groups enjoy dishes together as a leisurely social activity. Diners go to restaurants early (…) and rather than ordering a whole table of food, they order small amounts, have a cup of tea, read the newspaper, and wait for friends and family to join them.

TL;DR this is a comfy thread in which to share and appreciate small videos, less than ten minutes long, about Go and Go players. Casual chit-chat is encouraged c:

This sounds exactly as it should! :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:
The mother’s tale is moving and of course we know that little Mickey made it to the highest level… and maybe it’s right for that reason that it’s so fascinating: just like Valentino Rossi riding his miniature bike in races between 6yo kids. You can already taste the glorious future that will come later.

Well done, little Mickey! :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:

Seems like there should be a lot of overlap with the Go Videos thread, but I see that the point here is to have only short videos here.

I really liked these board making videos posted by @Lys here: Go videos - #264 by Lys

Approximately 2 minutes each

Maybe we should embed videos via the player instead of links?


@le_4TC’s Go advent calendar is a set of 24 videos, that are each under 10 minutes long
