  1. I had a dream last night that lee will win this game

    • How’s your track record in dreams coming true? :)

      Maybe we need a Paul the Octopus (2010 World Cup) here on GGG.

        Pretty good. I always have this kind of special sense. I actually haven’t into playing go for half a year now, so not even this jubango. So surprisingly I saw the headline in my dream that gu li will face kadoban. But I actually have always thought that the sponsor might just rigging the match already so to get them to play all the game?

    • Your dream didn’t deceive you, Long. This is turning into a catastrophy for Gu Li. No smiles after the game this time. Giving away good positions, like Gu Li did in games before, was just too expensive. This time, I thought Lee Sedol achieved a promising position in the fuseki. With the results before, that made him an instant favorite.

  2. Winning will come first in this game. If one of the players goes in the lead, he will clamp down on the game, instead of chosing the most interesting line of play. A complicating factor is the thin air though. Silly to chose a location where this becomes a factor.

    • Perhaps, but in some ways, Go players — especially professional Go players who accept many matches all over the place, but really all Go players — must often play in many different environments, and there are already many factors everywhere in less bluntly obvious ways:

      The noise in adjoining rooms, the amount of sunlight and windows (or is the lighting dingy and flickering fluorescent?), the spaciousness, the height of the ceiling in that room, what the players ate or have available to eat, the quality of the air and whether it has been scented with anything (incense? cloying air freshener? Or is the air stuffy? fresh?), the season and temperature… internal confidence, fear, and other ways we choose to approach the game… and, there is always stamina and the spirit one throws at a game.

      Especially for professionals who are constantly having to play many games in many different locales and physical environments.

      Every factor has its unique challenges and pros and cons, and the thin air is no different. It presents unique challenges. But in some way, having a strong constitution — or knowing how to deal well with a weak one — is already part of being a Go player.

      And, Lhasa _is_ a beautiful location to pick. 😉

      • Disturbances will always come up, and a professional player has to be able to deal with that, so yes.
        But it’s the organizers duty to minimize foreseeable disturbances, so no.
        Besides, robing the brain of oxygen is an especially wicked disturbance.

  3. I replayed the game once, just for a first impression. What a fantastic rough and tumble game! These guys seem to get away with about anything, you are never sure anymore whether a move is sente. I guess this is a concept that has changed dramatically over the years, I suppose most of the ‘how to’ go books should be rewritten, certainly on the aspect ‘why’, that is, why on earth play just there? Fascinating!

    Kind regards,
    Paul
