Malaysia Weiqi Association had just ended their 2nd League (Ranking Trial) yesterday [29th August, 2009]. Apparently everyone was doing well in the league since the league came with handicap systems.

Some of the long missing Malaysian Go Players had happened to attend Japan Club regularly such as: Song san, Wynes and Jimmy.

It was pretty unfortunate and disappointed that only Shino still attending Japan Club after it had been said ever since Xinwen left Malaysia for Holiday [May-July].

However, there came a new-comer, Anthony who started to be a regular member of Japan Club and very passionate in the game of Go too, even tried KGS.

According to the event of International Go Federation, the 20th World Pair Go Tournament will be commencing in Japan of November. Malaysia is sending Jimmy (2-dan) and Suzzane (3-dan) as representative team.

Supposedly Alex Chan had been selected to go for this event [REF] however due to the immediate event of Asian Amateur Baduk Championship in November 27th, Alex had to choose one of it thus Alex gave this opportunity to Jimmy.

Note: *Jimmy was replaced by Hock Doong due to early depart.

After White had made the marked [triangle] move, it had seemed to be the climax of this game. Matching the playing of Suzzane, this is pretty typical situation to be happened in some capturing race with liberties chase.

Black’s deciding next moves would be probably trying to save both group in the middle by killing White E11 group or either the corner C17 group.

Imminent Game

*Game with Mr.Tiong*

On the 15th, August 2009, for many years, Xinwen had happened to challenge Mr.Tiong again. It was probably the 5th times for Xinwen to play against Mr.Tiong (first time in 2007).

*Unfamiliar Fuseki*

White “4” starting at 6-4 , it was Xinwen’s second time encounter in his game, referring back in November of 2008 when first played against Denmark. (ref: archive). Xinwen was happied to start with his Black “3” and with joseki played out expectedly.

Note: Lately, Xinwen had changed the style to move at 3-5 in fuseki due to its Joseki variation and the result, love to experiment and learn.

Black 39 and White 40 was a questionable exchange up until now in Xinwen’s mind.

*Resignation*

Throughout the game, Mr.Tiong had happened to overplay his winning move at “A” and “B” which made a turnover for Xinwen. However, due to Xinwen mis-reading the running sequence of L10 group, they were dead.

Hence, this is another memorable game marked in Xinwen’s heart of go playing against Mr.Tiong Immently.

Xinwn didn’t went well from the fuseki then a major mistake at White “82”, resulting a thick wall for black.

Lately, Xinwen noticed Philip Cher and Dennis Chen had happened to play out that fuseki shown above. Thus, of course forcing Xinwen to study from professional’s game regarding the variation.

Probability 1 is one of the easiest variation to learn. however the White “1” stone probably will be attacked severely later.

Probability 2 “runs together” with the black and resulting a small scale battle.

To  Xinwen, this is the primary sequence or can be said to be the easiest variation out of all. Black 9 may choose not to atari and instead just played one move just bottom of “5” if the ladder doesnt work for black.

*Xinwen’s tips in learning Joseki or Fuseki*

This is Xinwen’s way of learning go, if you’re to study your favourite joseki, then look for professional games of related joseki and try to comprehend the variants they have chosen. The same goes to studying fuseki.

Xinwen loves memorising professional game, and most of the time he learned new josekis from old kifu.
