|Guo Juan||Yes, 'how to play handicap games' is already on our TO Do list. Thanks for you patience!|
|ekzpert||I was just about the request the same thing, fortunately saw this one :) Also "middle game training" is a great idea thanks so much for all the lectures.|
|Guo Juan||FreeLecture-2007-Chinese New Year is about handicap Go. In this lecture I gave you some tips. Later we will come back to make about 5 lectures on this subject.|
|matthew.f.peters||Guo, many many thanks. I couldn't have asked for a better lecture. The position you described, where in a 5-stone game White plays knight's moves approaches in opposing corners is _exactly_ what one of the stronger players at our club keeps doing to me. Now you have given me a way to play that I can use straightaway. He also does the cross cut in the corner that you describe and provide help with. It is as if you had been watching our last game!
I was also rather proud that you introduced it saying "One of the students...one of our members..." and I thought "I think that is me that she is talking about!"
