Been a while, eh? In the results category, I have played a lot of people and am continuing to improve. I even attended a tournament and conducted myself respectably. You don’t want details.
I replayed some of Takemiya‘s games on the computer and found them utterly incomprehensible. Then I found out that “reviewing Takemiya’s games is very instructive since they are full of unusual ideas. It is very difficult to follow his style but at the same time his plays opens horizons for others,” so I didn’t cry. Then I replayed the most famous game of Go ever, and it wasn’t completely bewildering. I think if I keep improving quickly, I’ll ask for this book of Shusaku’s games for Christmas. Unless it’s $47 and I’m not a moron, of course.
