As most of you know, I’ve spent my fair share of money on this game. Perhaps one of my craziest purchases as a beginner was The Complete Game Records of Go Seigen. Yup. I bought it in September 2010 when I was a mere 15k. And though it may have seemed like the biggest waste of money at the time, I can only smile as I think about how funny the world works sometimes.
Since my first step onto the endless path of go, I have come to learn of many different professionals along with their various styles. And though I’ve come and gone between the various ones and learned from them, none of them ever really stuck with me. It’s not that I don’t admire their strength or am not a fan of them, but there was never one that stuck with me more than another.
