IMPORTANT - impact of Coronavirus / Covid 19 on Go related activities

The new Covid measures forbids any cultural related activities gatherings.
Go clubs have to stop their activities involving gathering of players starting from this day. This includes weekly meetings as well as any sort of Go tournament (such as Interclubs).

Therefore, until the situation improves, we advice players to meet on Internet to play Go (OGS, KGS...).
See list of Internet Go sites here.

Commented AlphaGo's games

Recently, 2 series of commented AlphaGo games were published on the net.

1. Michael Redmond, the 9-d pro from USA, makes very detailed review of all the 50 games AlphaGo played against itself
(remenber: these games were given as a heritage to the Humanity by DeepMind, when Google decided to quit the world of go).

Up to now, 7 games have been commented.

The comments exist on 2 forms: vidéo and sgf files (which are more detailed...but less entertaining).

The level is rather high (difficult for a double digit kyu player), but still the comments are very interesting...

You can find the videos here:
game 1: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vjsN9BRInys
game 2: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=83B6MfrCAsg
game 3: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bybkv-8zegg
game 4: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oVwcTZBJR3g
game 5: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4ugqVWcPE_4
game 6: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7IChbHs6LTg
game 7: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YNPpbgI2Sa8

2. No less interesting: Fan Hui and Ke Jie comment the 3 games of the match AlphaGo - Ke Jie (they spreak chinese but subtitles are available in English).
Especially interesting is that Fan Hui asked "live" AlphaGo what it should have played in case of alternative moves...

Game 1: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HIu9P9wEIsc&feature=youtu.be
Game 2: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SF486mbvAOI&feature=youtu.be
Game 3: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CUZxe7bXKxo&feature=youtu.be

Enjoy !
