Jonathan Cheng is “super motivated” to teach a Thursday evening class for the sole purpose of helping strong double-digit kyu players (roughly 15-10 kyu) to reach single digit kyu within months. The first class of “Breaking Into Single Digit Kyu” will be on Thursday, August 10, from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m.
The structure of the class consists of primarily reviewing games of the students, and therefore it will be highly interactive, just like a private tutoring session. Through the game reviews, you will learn:
1. Basic concepts for the beginning and mid-game
2. Solving life-and-death and tesuji problems in your games
3. Basic qualities/attitude of being a decent go player (How to win a losing game? Or give handicaps? Or play against a stronger player?)
The class is free, and your first 10 visits to the Go Center are free. For more information on membership please go to our membership page .
Maeda Ryo 6P and Kang Min Hoo 2p, two professionals from the Kansai Ki-in in Japan, will be playing simultaneous games at the Go Center on this Tuesday, Aug. 1. The first event will be at 3:00 p.m., and the second will be at 7:00 p.m. Both pros will be playing both times. Games are $10, watching is free. You may sign up in advance by emailing the manager, or by using the sign up sheet on the 2nd desk at the entrance to the playing room. Usually the evening games fill up.
Maeda Sensei and Kang Sensei are going to the U.S. Go Congress in San Diego, which starts Saturday Aug. 5. We are happy that they included us in their visit!
