  1. I don`t know much about the players, i replayed some of Lee Sedols Games and i like his style verry much … and i know that Gu Li is a verry agressiv , fighting-player as well as Lee Sedol … as far as i`m still not a advanced player, for me, every pro-game is interesting to watch and hard to understand … :-)

    • Hi Amon. Yes, both players are very aggressive. In China Lee is called “the wolf” and Gu is nicknamed “muscle man” by Go players.

      Don’t worry if you don’t understand every move. The important thing is to enjoy the game. :) If you do that, you will learn many things by osmosis.
