Talking about these game commentaries, one of our valued customer Dieter Verhofstadt wrote: I enjoy these commented pro games enormously. It's about the only place on the net where you can get a glimpse of modern pro thinking, commented modern joseki and fuseki, comments which are moreover of Korean kin. The games are commented in great detail and all major aspects of Go playing are covered. The materials are suitable for amateurs from 10-kyu to 5-dan.
