AGA News - Go Spotting JAG

Jan 31, 2015 05:00 pm | Chris Garlock
Go drives the plotline in a second-season episode of JAG entitled “The Game of Go.”
  “Harm and a Colombian drug lord play a high-stakes game 2015.01.31_JAG-episodeof go, with the prize being a Marine who was left behind during a covert mission, as Webb and the JAG team once again butt heads,“ reports Dave Holland.
“My recollection of the episode is that several moves were spread out over the unfolding of 2015.01.31_JAG-close-up
the plot with closeups of the contested part of the board. It represented middle game fighting. A little far-fetched for a US Navy lawyer and a drug kingpin to be such accomplished players but good exposure for the game nevertheless.“ Note that the moves are played inside the board squares rather than on the intersections.
“I enjoy the EJ’s ‘Go Spotting’ column as go has a way of showing up in unexpected places,” says Holland. “I live in Minneapolis and recently met a young player from northern Minnesota whose grandfather learned baduk during the Korean War. He also went to high school with Bob Dylan.“
