When you actually play out a commented game that’s in printed kifu style onto Drago. All that time scanning left to right down the board to find a tenuki move…
…if you spend Christmas day on OGS playing Go.
… wondering where everyone else is…
… when somebody liking one of your comments is a good enough reason to necro a thread
…when you read about some “24h of Le Mans” and you think “That’s quite the handicap”.
…you refer to your posture as “shape”.
… when to you THIS is the master Yoda.
(fun fact: it was his game against Rin Kaiho that was shown as the game between Sai and Toya Meijin)
… when you think this is a video on fuseki
…when your driving in traffic and refuse to go into a lane because you see the hanging jaw and refuse to be trapped.
…when your driving and you find yourself shoulder tapping their bumper (in position only)
You know you are a Go addict when…
your most expensive asset in your home is your go set…
(Not my case )
You must be a Go addict if you annually budget $2000 or more for Go related expenses.
You keep playing…
Wow! I don’t even spend that on books. Of course, I buy almost all my books used.
A major chunk of it goes toward the US Go Congress that I attend every year. And I also pay for lessons.
Ah, the Go Congress, so then it is in part a vacation expense. Still an impressive sum! Sounds like a lovely vacation, too.
Tiger Jaw. My bad.
wait. you’ve actually met another go player? IN THE WILD???
In English we generally call what I think you’re referring to the “tiger’s mouth”. ( https://senseis.xmp.net/?TigersMouth )
I suck at the game but have been playing excessively, and drop ranks down to 25k when depressed desperate to get a win again and end up racking big losing streaks. Definitely counts as addiction behaviour I think!
