Cho Chikun

At the age of 100 one of the greatest Go players ever died on 2014-09-30 at 01:11 in the morning. Go Seigen's legacy is a treasure of hundreds of fascinating games. He will be remembered forever.

Jan van der Steen

Recently, we often get the question: "Is GoBase.org still an active website?!"
Well, you're reading this news item so: "Yes, we still maintain GoBase.org actively!" Actually, GoBase.org will move to new hardware pretty soon.
But as far as new content is concerned, you're right. Since 2011 no new content has been added. We do have a life besides GoBase.org, that's the main reason. But we expect, when the professional career will slow down a little we will pick up the work on GoBase.org again and update it regularly.
In the mean time, please enjoy the website and all its content and services already available to you.
