In this game between a couple of 2 dan USA players, Guo Juan 5P once again makes playing go look so simple with her insightful commentary. In one example, she urges players not to be afraid to fight when your opponent has weak groups nearby, because timidly not fighting can often quickly lead to a disadvantage. She also gives quite a few yose and big endgame plays that you’ll want to understand.
