Go news

It has been good to see some of the faces pop in of a Tuesday lunchtime this semester to play a game of Go. In particular, I've personally benefited from Wooram's patience and insight to help improve my own strategic focus in the past weeks. 

I'd love to see more of you of a Tuesday lunch time (1 pm in the Refectory — look for the banner), or indeed another time that we can carve off to have a game. If you are interested in dipping your toes in the water, and learn a little more about how to play, point your browser to https://online-go.com/puzzles, where you can start to learn about how to think in terms of tactical and strategic play within the game. 

If there is a little interest, I will restart the Club's on-line group where we can play some correspondence games. You will need to create an account and then join up to https://online-go.com/group/792 in order to play.  

And I'm making a promise to myself to finally finish off some of those wooden boards so that we are not playing on "shopping bags"! 

Finally, while the Brisbane Spring tournament was held this weekend past, the next opportunity for interacting and playing with the SEQ Go community will be the Seventh Gold Coast Classic  on Sunday 29th October - Links Hope Island clubhouse, Hope Island, Gold Coast. Five rounds of go (45 minutes + byoyomi) at the home of the Gold Coast Go Club (8am for 9am first round). Open and kyu (handicap) division. If you are interested, you can directly contact tournament director Horatio Davis (horatio@go.org.au) to RSVP, and if sufficient folk are wanting to make the trip, we can bundle ourselves into a car, as we often do, and go as a group.
