AndreHilhorst I have not played for twentyfive years and am starting again. After taking the first step-lessons I find that I have more control over my games. Thank you Guo Juan! On IGS I am 9k, KGS 6k. My goal for 2009 is to become IGS 5k....

Still I find our lovely game quit daunting. The games are fun, but when you play some who just slices through you position.... it looks immpossible to see what is happening.

Playing wth white goes much better after the lessons, which takes away an inhibition I felt a long time.

Just thought I would share this with you.

Merry Christmas!

Guo Juan I am so glad you like our lectures :-) thank you!
''but when you play some who just slices through you position....'' for this, you need to solve as many life-death problems as you have time, I am sure that will help you very much.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

AndreHilhorst Thank you, I am getting more confident now... I have followed some lessons on opening and middle game. Opening is more clear now, so I am making other mistakes (:-)). I found I was making really unnecessary overplays. I am taking the 30-20kyu lessons, but also more advanced. That seems to be working nicely.
