    I am just a beginner “go” player and your videos hold invaluable information for learning the game for me. This is an incredible game. Thanks! Looking forward to the next one.

    Amazing game! The attack on the two-space extension on the left hand side was so severe. I want to try out some of those moves in my games.

    I think for contrast it might be interesting to do a really modern game next, perhaps something from the last year between current top players. Something that shows off new ideas in joseki or fuseki.

    This was a wonderful lecture! Many thanks for posting this online.

    The great Chinese masters of the past, (Huang Longshi, Fan Xiping, Shi Dingan and many others) have a lot to teach us in the 21st century. I am so glad a professional like yourself has put this commentary online. I can only hope other Go players get “hooked” on the old Chinese games, as they really teach you about fighting and strategy.

    Please do more lectures like these: I will send an email to my Go club to get them to watch your video.

    I was surprised that you know so much Chinese masters. I thought they are relatively unknown in the west. I will introduce more about them in the future.

    Nice Game!! You achieved to give us a great insight into the game which would otherwise be very hard to understand. Thank you very very much and keep up the good work!!

    This game is simply astonishing! Basically every move was brilliant, both players did some amazing thinking…

    I would also love to watch more ancient Weiqi masters’ games. As ancient Weiqi opening was constrained, it surely always lead to passionate battles, which make them pretty much in fashion with the current trends in “korean style” (being the ancient Sunjang Baduk constrained as well).

    Finding a balance between ancient masterpieces like this one and modern games like Luo Xi He will make your insightful but easy-to-follow comments so much valuable to everyone.

    Thank you very much for your kind, hard work.

    “When you’re facing a challenge, you mustn’t give in — otherwise, the opponent will be one move stronger.”

    Absolutely brilliant quote. This one line just made me realize why I am so inconsistent. Much gratitude to you countsheep! haha I don’t know your name.

    At 22:46, you said “White must use the _______ technique.” What word was used there, I couldn’t quite make it out.

    Also, at 21:31, you said (talking about whites move) “this move is ________.” What was said there? I’m sorry, I just want to grasp and absorb everything you are teaching, thanks!

    “harshest technique”
    “this move is profound”
    Please tell me if the words are used incorrectly or the expressions are vague.

    OK, thanks! Those are 2 important pieces I somehow couldn’t understand, not your fault. I do have one thing to say to help ya out though:

    In a couple of your videos, I noticed that you used the word “risk” in a slightly wrong way, such as at 12:42 in this video. You said “Black risks cut.” However, you cannot say it like this.

    It might be hard to understand, and equally hard to explain, but a player CANNOT “risk” to do something (such as “black risks to cut White”). If it looks like Black is getting ready or planning to cut, you may say: “Black THREATENS to cut White.” In the video, though, since Black ACTUALLY PLAYED the cutting stone, you should simply say “Black cuts White.” or “Black cuts.”

    IF BLACK IS PLANNING TO CUT OPPONENT: “Black threatens to cut White. White risks being cut.”

    IF BLACK DID CUT OPPONENT (like at 12:42): “Black cuts White. White has been cut.”

    Does that make sense? Sorry if i seem rude or something, I just want to help ya out to get better at English. Thanks again for all the vids, keep em coming!

    Sorry for my bad accent…:(
    It was “waist cut”… not “risks cut”…
    Next time I will try to pronounce it more clearly.

    ­čÖé HAHA really? OK, ignore that paragraph I wrote then! Thank you sir.

    PS – you absolutely MUST keep making more “greatest games ever played” videos!

    at 4:06 what does the hane do? Also why is it harder to get a big moyo with starpoints?

    [Reply]

    excel Reply:

    w hane, b cut, w can kill two b stones.

    he said “players must use diagonal fuseki on star points, that makes san-ren-sen fuseki impossible.” players can’t get two star points on the same side, so it will be harder.

  21. Jan says:

    This game by Huang Longshi and Jiang Tianyuan was so amazing, It was also surprising to me that I almost memorized the entire game just by watching your review once. All your work is great and it feels like I am really learning from watching your various lectures & reviews. Especially this game really got to me and put me in a good mood for some reason. You must have heard this question alot, but what advice would you give to a player that wants to improve? Too poor to afford lessons.

    Thanks very much for all your hard work

  22. Hao Sun says:

    why does white play the split on move 4 instead of pincer 1 space higher or double kakari? Also on move 5 why not simple double kakari
    at 15:43 what if white double kakari to attack the upper left corner?
    at 21:57 what if black two space extension?
    at 23:11 what if white descends from the other side? white cannot allow the black capture so black gets sente and black can jump

    Overall I feel black was really submissive in the last part and left critical weaknesses by making a very large knights move
