Go with Vox

Vox had his best evening of go since January last night, defeating me 5 games in a row. I felt I had a good chance in the first two of the games, but he really dominated the others. Game 2 was the closest last evening.… Read More

Go with Vox

Vox had his best evening of Go at least since we started playing online due to the virus, rather than over the board. He won 3 of 5 games. We each won two games decisively, and in the first game Vox managed a .5 point… Read More

Go with Vox

Last night we played 6 games online – and I was fortunate to win all of them. I think Vox played reasonably well, but he hasn’t been able to figure out how to beat me consistently taking a 2-stone handicap. I’ve noticed that sometimes Vox… Read More

Go with Vox

Last evening, I went into our go games thinking I wanted to consciously slow down and fully use my time. Sometimes it’s easy to fall into the rhythm of the game and make hasty decisions without considering all the possibilities. In some of the games,… Read More

Go with Vox

We played 5 games online last evening, a session which might be characterized by errors on the part of both players. The second game was the most interesting from my perspective. Vox had staked out the bottom left and had a position in the centre.… Read More
