Hi everyone! Hope you doing well and i hope you have the luck to spend more time than myself on a REAL goban playing somebody you can watch in the eye while playing… and not like me, only internet go on kgs. But let`s stop complaining, it`s fun anyway… and maybe i will make it to our go-club this weak.
Only the here and now … i tend to make too many plans, even for my go study or (in the past) for this blog … but as i wrote in my last post, it does not feel right any more to take this blogging thing too serious… BUT on the other hand… i feel the need to go-blog again! But this time without any pressure… just, if i have something to share… share it… end of story. No more series… and plans for this blog! But still more about go here!
Soooo, how are my go studies going then?!
Actually at the moment my main focus is on life & death again… i decided to work on „1001 L&D“ and „Graded Go Problems 3“ … while i actually can solve these problems quite quick and could as well consider to do some harder L&D i think it is good to practice on this level until i really feel that i make almost 0% mistakes … that is not the case at the moment! Often because of overconfidence or not thinking long enough (~guessing) … i make mistakes from time to time … even on this level.
And a very nice thought was coming to my mind today related to L&D … what if i always ask my self, before looking to the solution, if i really took this problem serious enough … if i really gave 100%?? … this is, at the moment my biggest problem… and while trying to always have a occasionally question, like this, in my mind: „did i gave 100% to solve this L&D problem“ it maybe will help erasing my careless mistakes. This attitude will help in games as well… never giving 50% or 70% or 80% always taking everything (every tsumego), and every opponent 100% serious… no more hubris.
As you maybe realized my english is worse than before … that is another thing… in the past i spent too much time editing and correcting my language mistakes … this is how the „first draft“ always looks like … and today (and maybe always int he future) i will NOT correct anything… i`m sure, if you are interested in this text, you will have understood it anyway… and let`s be serious… in the end, a lot of bloggers are writing for them selves… it`s like a kind of diary… and if nobody really reads this text, it`s still ok… i did enjoy writing and thinking a bit about go. 😀 So, today i share a game review of my last game. Enjoy.
