In pair go, the coordination between partners is very important.  There is no communication during play, and each tries to understand their partner’s plan.  Sometimes partners have different styles which can lead to complications.

Feng Yun is one of only a handful of women to attain the top rank of 9 dan professional.  She has trained hundreds of young go players at her school in New Jersey.
