Although we certainly would not want to limit you to any of the
suggestions below, the areas in which GoBase might proof
particularly useful are:
- Study joseki
Use a joseki pattern as search key. GoBase will return
all encountered variations emerging from this joseki.
Variation branches are ordered by frequency, thus
showing you the main line of play first.
It will also provide you with the games in which
each variation of this joseki was applied.
This enables you to study in which circumstances
professionals apply specific lines of the joseki.
GoBase Search Service provides you with an up to date
electronic joseki dictionary with professional games
attached to each and every move.
- Study fuseki
Use a full (or half) board region as search key.
All points which apply to joseki study also apply to
fuseki study. So again GoBase provides you with an up
to date electronic fuseki dictionary with
professional games attached to each and every move.
Studying fuseki with GoBase will give you feeling for the
direction of play applied by professionals in the opening
stages of the game.

own needs and imagination, use GoBase for example to investigate:

in these shapes.
- Positions with invasions to discover the fighting patterns
evolving from these invasions.
- yosumi moves to study when to play them and how to follow
- Study games
Enter the game you are analysing (your own game for example)

region and hit the search button.
- Study instruction books
While studying Go instruction material use GoBase to get more
information on the discussed subjects. While books are limited
by practical factors (like the size of the book), GoBase enables
you to study the subject as profoundly as you like with
professional game examples as a bonus.
