Gosei Sentai Dairanger which he describes as “Japanese Power Rangers with a much darker look.” In the show, a boy named akomaru is in trouble with a big guy named Gouma. “In the beginning of the scene we see the edge of a wooden floor goban with very dark go bowls. Later in the scene you can see Gouma placing stones on the board.” This is Albert’s second go spotting – his previous one was Bruce Lee and Go 9/25/2011 – if you spot go, be sure to let us know at email@example.com!

“July 11 was Cory Massaro’s last night at the Santa Barbara Go Club,” writes club organizer Ed Lee. “Cory (2nd from left, with sunglasses on his head, in photo at right) has finished his graduate work at UCSB, and will start more graduate school in computer science at Brandeis University, Boston this Fall. Cory discovered the SB Go Club about a year ago, and we’ve been very happy to have him play regularly every Wednesday and sometimes on Saturday. The SB Go Club also said goodbye this week to another visitor, Alexander Taylor (in Durham Go Club t-shirt at left), who hails from Bristol, United Kingdom. Alex (about 2-dan in the U.K.) is a physics graduate student visiting UCSB for only a few weeks, but he also managed to find our little club, and we were very happy to have him.”

We came across this great photo posted 11/7/2011 on the V = I·R blog. Titled “Playing Go In Russia,” the blogger finds some appropriate ice floe references in James Davies’ Elementary Go Series, Volume 3: Tesuji: “A good player tries to read out [ahead] in his head before he puts the stones on the board. He looks before he leaps. Frequently he does not leap at all; many of the sequences his reading uncovers are stored away for future reference, and in the end never carried out. This is especially true in a professional game, where the two hundred or so moves played are only the visible part of an iceberg of implied threats and possibilities, most of which stays submerged.”

5/7/2012 Update: “I could be mistaken, but the men in that photograph look like Igor Grishin (left) and Maksim Tikhomirov (right) from the Russian Go Federation,” writes Nikolas. “ Alexandre Dinerchtein sent me more photos of them” on the All About Go blog.
