A year of Go in photos 2012-13

Throughout the year, we see a lot of Go photos.

And sometimes, when we see something funny, clever or interesting, we save a copy to share with you!

Here are some of our favorite photos, which we’ve seen on the internet over the last year or so. We hope you’ll enjoy them.

    who is “Bai” Jia Jia?

    • David Ormerod says:

      Joanne’s Chinese name is 黑嘉嘉 (Hei Jiajia). Hei (黑) means black and bai (白) means white. It’s a play on words with the colors of the pieces and the two different outfits Joanne’s wearing in the picture.
