I'm a 25 year old EGF 1 dan, playing Go since late 2006. I was active in the community at Sensei's and the former SE-1.0 site shidogo.com, now switched my attention to BCG.SE

Known as recorder, I published the first large collection of Go videos in the West a few years ago. I've created a platform for bad Go jokes.

comment How to play teaching game and give a useful review
A quick note about point 2: A major reason for not finishing the games is that it would take too long. Typically I stop around move 50-100 after 1-2 hours. But just like you said, it is better to speed up for DDK players because they make and subsequently understand their mistakes more quickly.

comment Magic Sword: Peaceful Variation or is Punishment Possible?
@shujaa: If you're going to play black 5 anyway to protect the cut, why would you exchange 3 for 4 first? Certainly better to play 1-2-5 and let white fix at 3 in gote so black gets to play on the right side.

1/4 likely refers to 9x9, I have never seen 11x11 in this context.

@Nick Yes, but wouldn't you always try 'sandbag' the other player (claiming you're weaker than you really are)?

This is very true, I never understood how handicap and betting can be used together in the same game.
