Here I would like to lay down how I was taught to solve Tsumego in Korea and how I intend to keep to that policy for posting Tsumego on this blog.
It is quite simple as there will not be solutions posted. In Kore we usually had our Tsumego marked wrong or right and had to redo the problem if it was wrong on our own, without being told why it was wrong. I know myself that sometimes finding a solution to a particular problem can be very frustrating if you just do not find the key but eventually you will find the key and solve the problem.
My teacher Kim Sung-rae 8p said, which I think is very true, that in solving Go problems not the solution itself is important but the way or ways you needed to take to get to it. The constant reading of many different variations is what hones our Baduk-skill.
Tomorrow I will try to post a complete Speed solving test. Look forward for some speedy fun!
In that regard good solving!

The next season of the Korean Baduk League is started. It is really nice to see such a tournament...unfortunately Baduk TV isn't available anymore - without costs. But I will try to post some news about this league. Especially it's an even, which isn't much in the news section of other blogs or websites...
OK, here we go. Thanks to igokisen, I can post the teams and members each of them...
The first game was between Shinan Chuncil Salt, the current champion, and Yeongnam Ilbo. Yi Sedol lead his team to the victory and a nice start into the new season.
|His team won by 3-2.|
The original chart looks like this:
I will try to post alot of pics here...if you like them, please post it, so I can continue to post pics in the future :)
I hope you enjoy the KBL...in future I try to post the records too...see you!
