30-04-09 Lost my league game today due to some grave mistakes and in the end i could not recover from them. The next exam we have is on Monday on the Avalanche joseki in a whole. It is just 120 pages to learn and memorize aside from our daily tasks and homework. Gotta hang in there!
12-05-09 I lost to Scott today, an very embarassing loss to. I did not feel well after the game. The good news is that I passed all tests, even those which I had to retake yesterday. Need to train more. Back with Kim Sung-Ryong-sabomnim I learned some important things about my Baduk. My weaknesses are shape and reading ability and there are two ways to fix my problems. Either study and improve my shapes, which is a very hard thing to do, or improve my reading ability and keep the attitude of killing stuff by superior reading.
As a side-note: Kim-sabomnim back when he was fourteen had an intensive professional game training session. He replayed 200 professional games a day up to move 50 to study the opening. Advise was to do it with at least 10000 professional games.
14-05-09 Today not much training happened. Most of us were gone to the beach so I only played one league game and after that had some excercises on Cyberoro. Sometimes when playing there I just cannot understand how unreasonable some players can play there. I just cannot.
15-05-09 This morning I played Kim Sung-Ryong-sabomnim at three handicap stones. Sadly I lost badly due to some mistakes I better should have seen but I was rather light-minded today. Other than that I was out of KBC for most of the day as I had to take some pictures for my China-visa later this month. I got free pizza and icecream!
