Buri Greetings,
still having a wonderful time with the Joseki for beginners course. I find the numbering very helpful because I can pause the screen of my iPad , close my eyes and replay the joseki many times in my head. I think this kind of practice is invaluable . Much more so than pressing buttons on an electronic goban!
However, as the sessions get more advanced it would be helpful to have a few more numbered variations. For example, lesson 26 at 12.50 there is a useful variation that is rather difficult to work out if I just freeze the screen and it is way to fast to learn just by pausing on an I pad. I hope this feature can be given some consideration,
Warmest regards,

Darrell Malick Greetings back Buri! I'm glad you're liking the Joseki for beginners series because it remains one of my favorites too! Regarding numbering a sequence on the board - GJ will be glad to hear you like it and continue to do it I'm sure. However, GJ reserves this practice for actual joseki sequences. The sequence you refer to at 12:50 is a path resulting from non-joseki moves, so would never get on-board numbering. There are, however, four problems in the problem set that deal with these variations to help you with learning and remembering them. Problem 12 is the *exact* sequence you mention. Here's a link. http://internetgoschool.com/auth/problems/1000/9nnKzrF4_JI$?cram=1 Problems 10, 11 and 13 are also on the subject. You can access the problems specifically dealing with a given lecture by using "Cramming Mode". See the help file if you don't know how to do this. Best regards to you too! -Darrell-
