Introduction

Although most game records on this site lack any comments, partly due to copyright issues, partly because annotating games is a lot of work, the collection below is an exception. There is another collection featuring amateur games commented on by other amateurs. That collection is worthwhile studying as well, especially when you're anywhere in the 9k-5k range.

The games below have all been replayed and analysed on the Internet Go Server using the teach mode (see: help teach on IGS for details). Interesting moments in the game are used to ask the observers of the game their opinion on the position. They are asked to consider either the strategic or tactical implications, depending on the actual situation. Usually they are asked to think about and suggest ideas for the next move. Especially this last aspect of these replay sessions is appreciated since it helps to understand the game.

The game analyses don't feature a lot of variations, but they mainly try to illustrate how to think in Go, how do professionals approach situations which appear to be simple to deal with? Often they don't play the move which we (amateurs) come up with, why? Of course the analyses also discuss the concepts of the game of Go (very important) and usually even the basic concepts (like connecting/cutting, shape, sente/gote and kikashi).

Some games clearly have more comments than other games. An obvious reason can be that I didn't have any observers joining me to discuss the game with during the replay. Another likely reason might be that the game simply was too complex to comment on.

The games below are listed reverse in time, so the most recent games are listed at the top of the list. This will help you to keep track of any new games arriving here. The date mentioned in the listing below refers to the date the game was analysed, not when it was played. All games included in the listing below are also included (without comments) in the regular area of professional games on this site. In that case they have the proper date set in the SGF file.
