Ilya Shikshin vs AgainstZen

Ilya made few big mistakes in this game.
First of all Black's move #13 must be extension. In real game B lived in the corner, but only with few points.
It was clearly bad for Ilya to survive this way.
The second big mistake and the losing overplay - Black's cut at 41. The right move is to defend solidly at R9

It's a shame this site isn't updated anymore. After this game, AgainstZen played one more game, against kathy [9d], and lost due to time. I am not sure that was a real loss though. AgainstZen did not play again after that, and has apparently disappeared. I'd love to see the kibitz in that game, and I'd love to see an expert opinion too.

Hi Gosensations folks,

This is just a short letter of encouragement from a humble 2k. I think this site is very valuable. I learn a lot from the commented games, especially about fuseki, tesuji, and joseki. But more importantly, it gives a epic quality to the online play of amateurs.

We all love watching the strong dans battle on KGS, but seeing those games deemed noteworthy and be reviewed here somehow lends them a greater importance. It encourages me to pay more attention to my own games and to the games I watch. And it makes me want to build my skills as best I can. Even though I will never be a pro, or even a meaningfully strong amateur, my games can become noteworthy to others who seek to better their own play.

I don't know why there have been no new posts here recently and I don't want to speculate. I just want to thank you for the work you do running this site, to tell you that it is appreciated, and that it makes the online go world more vibrant.


petition, 2k kgs

Why don't you guys update anymore? Nothing is updated in more than a month, and most far longer than that.

It seems it's been a while since there has been updates on gosensations.

This site is one of my favourite, it has a lot of interesting parties. I especially like the one on Tygem plus nice interviews.

Please keep up the good work!!!

For those who are interested I also made blog about major go tournaments:

going by the game against zen i guess he is xuanxuango, a chinese teenager who recently stopped trying to be pro.
