Murugandi reviews - A Daily Video Go Show !!!!
Monday - Friday from 7pm at www.EuroGoTV.com
After the final play-offs for the Dutch Championships, in february of this year, KGS player 'Murugandi' (6d) and HW9x9 (weak) took the initiative of reviewing the decisive matches of the tournament. Live on videostream, the audience from KGS could watch the two players commenting on the exciting game between Peter Brouwer (6d) and what proved to be the Dutch champion of 2011, Merlijn Kuin (6d). Positive reactions followed and one of the videos was placed on the EuroGoTV website, where it got more than 300 views in just a few days.
Enthusiastic viewers e-mailed the EuroGoTV team, asking for more...
Now, almost two months later, those wishes will finally be fulfilled.
In the shape of a fresh daily video series, Murugandi an! d HW9x9 will work together and review games played by strong dan-players from big and interesting tournaments held all over Europe.
The discussing of the games will focus on the basics of go, concerning aspects like making bases, watching out for your own weaknesses, how to use your own strength and cancel your opponents, and whole-board strategies like moyo. By emphasising the basic principles of go, and using proverbs and metaphores to clarify the explanations, they generally aim for an audience between 15kyu-1kyu, but also hope to entertain stronger players and positively stimulate complete beginners. The format of the interaction between the two reviewers is a parody on traditional Japanese go commentaries, consisting of one 'stupid' person, HW9x9, who asks all sorts of interesting and funny questions, who are then calmly answered by a stronger player, Murugandi.
With the help and support of the Dutch Go Association
and the European Go Cultural Centre
, we are able to provide you with new, hopefully exciting games every day from 7pm Amsterdam time. From monday to friday new videos will be uploaded on a daily basis in the Video
section on the website, and old reviews are available to watch in the archive.
Feel free to let them know your thoughts and suggestions, and most of all, enjoy!
