28th May 2016, Brunei Darussalam Go Association had intruded Sekolah Menengah Katok to introduce Go to year 9 and year 10 students of over 300-350 of them! This is another record set by BDGA in their achievement.

Students were introduced to 5×5 Go without explaining the rules of KO and illegal move. The aim is to allow them to have fun. But unfortunately, the sets prepared were only able to accommodate 200 students.

BDGA thanks Sekolah Menengah Katok for allowing them this opportunity to teach the students the game!

If you think (European Go Congress) is too expensive, maybe you can try the Japan Go Congress organized by the Nihon Kiin (Japanese Go Association) which will be held in Tokyo!

Lee SeDol learned moves from AlphaGo!

Lee Sedol

“I decided to more accurately predict the next move instead of depending on my instincts, and I am putting that into practice.”

Lee Sedol has not lost any games ever since his matches against Man vs Machine.

Xinwen: I was right too when I saw the kifu and shared it here that Lee Sedol moves reminded everyone of AlphaGo – Incredible!

Lee Sedol played AlphaGo’s move?

*Quarter-Final Game*

Lee Sedol (Black) vs Kang DongYun (White)

Black move-13 and move-21 were astonished plays by Lee Sedol (李世乭) vs Kang DongYun (姜东润) during the recent on-going 8th ING CUP World Professional Go Tournament 2016.

Xinwen is definitely rooting for Lee Sedol in the event, personally think Lee has improved ever since the match against Alphago. Great sportsmanship to keep fighting for the World Cup!
