The international Go scene usually gets a bit quiet around this time of year, so we thought we’d try something a bit different this year.
Younggil thinks it’s an interesting idea, but told me that he’s not really familiar with games from the classical era, because when he was training to become a pro (as well as afterwards) they didn’t really have the time or luxury of studying games from before the time of Go Seigen.
Recommend classic games for analysis
So he asked me to recommend some games, but after a bit more thought we decided it would be more fun to ask you to recommend your favorite games for analysis!
I have a list of games I like, but I’m asking you instead.
Leave a comment to nominate a game
To nominate a game that you’d like to see reviewed, simply leave a comment below.
It would be great if you could also provide a link to a site where everyone can have a look at the game record.
If you can’t find the game online, but have an SGF file on your computer, you can upload it to EidoGo.com and you’ll be given a link that you can share here.
If you only have the game in a book, then please let us know who the players were and the date of the game (or at a minimum, the book’s name and the page number).
You can suggest a game from any era, but please don’t nominate your own games.
Or second someone else’s suggestion
Since we’ve rarely had a use for voting buttons on comments here, Go Game Guru doesn’t support that sort of functionality.
So for now, if you’d like to second a game that someone else has already nominated, just click the ‘reply’ link at the bottom of their comment and let us know. You can simply write ‘+1’ if you want to.
A fresh perspective?
Since Younggil won’t have studied most of the games before and he doesn’t refer to other commentaries when analyzing a game, I’m looking forward to seeing what happens.
Perhaps we’ll get a new perspective on some timeless games?
Or perhaps you’ll recommend a game that we haven’t seen commented before?
