Jonathan Hop 3d, author of the “So You Want to Play Go?” series, has opened a new website featuring video lectures for go players of all levels. There are several free lessons for new users to try the service out, and then lessons on various topics can be rented for $1.99. “Currently the site has about 20 lectures,” says Hop, “but little by little I will put more up. My goal is to make go more of a game that Americans can relate to, and see as fun and personable. You’ll find lectures for total beginners, as well as those on more advanced topics like invasions and josekis.” Hop has given lectures on KGS, and has been teaching players, from total beginners to single digit kyus, for a number of years.
