8th March

So this is the famous women's day.
I'm congratulating all women in the world.

Пусть первый подснежник
Подарит Вам нежность!
Весеннее солнце подарит тепло!
А мартовский ветер подарит надежду,
И счастье, и радость, и только добро!

Вот такое поздравление!

Sorry for russian :)

As for my GO, omg 7 days have passed since the last post. I have played a few games since then. I have also tried playing on Cyberoro server and IGS. I had 2 games on IGS which I have won quite easily. However, all my games on cyberoro were a sure loss. I have played 5 times and lost all 5 of them. Seems to me that people there are much stronger than on KGS.

Go progress so far!

no problems solved
no books read
no game reviews done.

Not good at all!

Duh! 1st March Already!

Time is passing by quite fast. Just a while ago I was updating here and it is already more that 1 week since then. There actually many things that happend over this period. For example I have signed up for KGS tournament for 25th February and missed because I thought it was 24th while it was 25th February. Strange, but when my mouse went over clock panel, the date appeared 26th February. I was Like WTF>> got Screwed up!

I have also had some games on KGS and got some of them reviewed by good players.
My rank went to 21 kyu. Let's hope that it is not a final stop.
I have played several games with my Girlfriend and she is a bit into it, but not as Go addicted as me. She is interested but my teaching is far from being any good. I need to improve in that field.

I had no chance to begin reading "The opening theory....." just had no time for it. However I have read something else. A few pages from Second Book of Go and several pages from some russian book on Go Forms. Quite interesting book, it shows stone positions and explains what positions are bad and which ones are good.

Over the weekend i was solving go problems in Many faces of GO. Got to Level 67. After that it is just too hard for me. I wish I could change the promlems order the program gives. Like Opening problems, Joseki problems, tesuji etc. Something like at goproblems.com

Have to play more games. more. !!!
