Got some interests to play and study go a bit in the new year after a long time away, thought I could make a thread there. I learned the game all by chinese materials so expecting quite bad usage of English go terms.

Currently 2k at fox server.

Played some games and asked a pro go teacher for advise. He suggested me to learn:

- Go theory and whole board directions
- Usual shapes of life&death
- Usual Joseki
- Common mistakes

Also advised me not to play many fast games, not good for a beginner to build right intuition.

I'm following the plan. Not expecting fast rank progression, Just learn them as fundamentals for a higher level game.

Also, I do a few tsumegos every day online(101weiqi.com). It's super convenient and the contains most possible answers. But I feel it also creating an eager for me to try answer before read it all out. Considering to use a problem book instead.

A few progression

Trying to setup Anki to study and revise Life & Death Problems, but still a long way before done.
Haven't using a problem book.
Don't feel not much improvement in my reading.

Finished the theory part. Game style changed from a battle preferred to not too eager to start a fight. Played a bit more game than suggested, and become a Fox 1d now.

Nice work keeping at it and improving.

I used Anki for language study and it was very handy. I should go back to it. I saw a few Go study sets available online for Anki. I briefly checked them out but it was not for me. That might be because I prefer books. And when I do study Go I don't often feel like studying tsumego. Still, if you find a set that you like please share with us.

I'm using Anki for memorize popular L&D shapes solutions. Many of them are a bit hard for me, but common in real game, so I just remember the result. I'm making the deck myself, around 20 cards every week. I suppose there will be about 100 cards in total.

For reading practise, I bought this L&D book after previous post:
https://www.amazon.com/%E5%9B%B4%E6%A3% ... 348&sr=8-6

Feel well with it.

Don't have much motivation for practice last month (Playing Games). Still review added cards in anki (I have about 80 cards now, most L&D variations, but also some joseki or other knowledge i'd like to remember). Along with that, I also watch some go videos every day.

One day in this week I got motivated and was playing go whole night, after over 10+ games, end up 2d in Fox server. A bit tired so I stop playing since then.
