Hi everyone,

I am Pierre, from Belgium. I am playing go since november 2018, with the hope of developing my skills by each game I play. In the end, I would like to reach a level where I could know enough go to be a good go teacher to my young daughter.

My style of play is very "sticky" for now: even if I try to read good books about strategy, I feel that my game is still focused on killing opponent's groups, and I am always amazed by how light and delicate (yet well-balanced) pro games are, while mine is merely thick. (see https://online-go.com/game/16844146 for example - I am playing white) My goal is to change that style for something more effcient. If you've been through this, I would be very happy to receive your advices...

Hello and welcome, Pierre. It is good to hear that you are trying to improve each time you play - that way even when you lose the experience can be positive. I hope you enjoy your time at OSR and I look forward to playing Go with you sometime.

Welcome Pierre! :)

One motto that comes to my head reading what you said: "You never lose. You either win or learn." ;)

Hope to play with you in the DDK league.
