Now that it is fall, the Seattle Go Center will open at 2:00 p.m. Thursdays. Lucy will usually be your host in the afternoon. She is also available to teach beginners. Thursday evenings will continue to have classes for complete beginners with Larry Eclipse. Other players are welcome on Thursdays evenings as well.
The Single Digit Kyu class returns on Wednesday evenings, from 7-9 p.m. with Peter Nelson and Andrew Jackson. This is our more advanced class, for players 9 kyu and stronger. Many of these classes are recorded on Youtube, so you can be part of the live audience. Peter Nelson also has game analysis at longstridebaduk.
The Double Digit Kyu class, will start up October Sept 19 with guest teacher Jonathan Cheng. Nick Sibicky will return Oct. 3.
Playing Go in the Tatami Room
We have five young players coming to the Go Center on Tuesdays in the early evening. All of them will be starting kindergarten in the fall. This is a great age for one-on-one learning of the game. Many of the parents play Go, and they are rotating the pairings so that the children get a variety of opponents. We also have three grade school students and two high school students coming on Tuesdays. Our recent Tuesday attendance has been over 40 players, ranging from beginner to about 4 dan. We also have children coming on Saturday afternoons.
Instructors Andrew Jackson (left) and Nick Sibicky (right) will be playing a friendly but intense game during Nick’s DDK class on Monday, June 27, starting at 6:30 p.m. This will be Nick’s last Double Digit Kyu Player class for the summer, but he will probably be teaching again in the fall. During July, we will have guest instructors Brian Kirby, Jonathan (Chin Jung) Chen and Maeda Ryo 6P. There will be no classes on July 4, and in August. Nick’s lectures are recorded and posted on YouTube. Many of Andrew’s Single Digit Kyu Player classes are posted here.
