*the first 10-dan on all Go Server, Jue Yi*



JueYi “绝艺” also known as the Chinese “AlphaGo” developed by Tencent became the first 10-dan on FoxgoServer. JueYi had defeated Yun Jun-sang (尹畯相):clover77, Fan YunRuo (范蕴若):北海的早晨, GuLi (古力):星宿老仙, Chen YaoYe(陈耀烨):谜团, Park JungHwan (朴廷桓):maker and so on.

*Recent Game Records*


JueYi had achieved 18 wins – 2 losses and most of his challengers are World Champion – Top Professionals; and thus according to FoxGoServer’s rules, JueYi has promoted to 10-dan. The incident has even allowed the appearance of Dr.Aja Huang to congratulate the achievement of JueYi by logging in Deepmind.


FoxGoServer Top Ranking Players.

Apparently KeJie had challenged JueYi “offline” not via FoxGoServer and has been informed on his weibo that he has lost almost all the games.

However comparing to AlphaGoJueYi is still weaker.

The Surrounding Game 2017

*The surrounding Game Trailer 2017

The ancient game of Go is the most complex and elegant game ever discovered. Though the rules are simple enough to teach a child, the complexity that emerges has inspired millennia of study. For three thousand years, master players in East Asia have handed down the game as an art form to foster patience, creativity, and self-reflection. Today in the elite world of the pros, international tournaments offer hundred-thousand dollar prize purses, and top matches are broadcast on 24-hour “Go TV” to millions of fans in China, Korea, and Japan. But in the West, most people have never even heard of the game… until now.

THE SURROUNDING GAME follows the lives of three young Americans vying to become the first-ever Western professional players. Quirky, cerebral, and disillusioned with conventional views of success, they represent a new generation of players, on the doorstep of adulthood. As the competition intensifies and intricate patterns spill out across the board, the line between reality and imagination starts to blur. Their thoughts turn to anxieties about the future, and lead them on a journey through the game’s ancient past to ask what it means to live a meaningful life. Through an intimate portrait of these young players and interviews with the greatest Go masters of all time, the film explores the search for meaning that Go represents to its players, for whom the game is a distillation of consciousness itself.

New Resolution to 2017!

*Penang Weiqi Association*

Penang Weiqi Association at Meet Up Cafe! during Christmas!

I am very proud that 2016 was definitely the best year for Brunei Darussalam Go Association but there are still many rooms for improvement especially getting new recruitment and leveling up!

The level of Brunei Darussalam Go Association has now officially ranked the weakest in South East Asia for now performing well in any International Tournament.

*Meet up in Singapore*


Regardless, there are many notable achievement we did throughout the year 2016.

1) the 3rd South East Asia Go Championship 2016
This was the greatest achievement ever done as Brunei Darussalam Go Association hosted the second International Event with over Seventy (70) delegates from so many countries such as S.Korea, China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam,  Indonesia and etc.

The event commenced smoothly with the help of D’Anggerek Serviced Apartment and the kind generosity from Progresif Cellular to make this event so complete! Thank you all for the hard-work and success!

2) Association, Community Center& Embassy
We have been trying to announce our existence to many Chinese-Cultural bodies in Brunei especially Brunei Hokkien Association for giving us the opportunity to promote Go. We are also thankful that the Taipei Culture & Economic office in Brunei is looking forward to work with us.

3) Schools
This has been the most difficult part as Schools tend to ignore our proposal by giving us many lame excuses without acknowledging the greatness and beneficial of Go.

Resolution for 2017

1) Push harder to local communities and schools!

2) Level up the existing players by creating a more efficient league system!

3) Get more new players!

I hope the three simple resolution can make a different in 2017!
