In this game between single digit kyu players, Guo Juan 5P covers strategic ideas useful to players of all levels.

Guo Juan gives these player overviews:
“The White player Buzzsaw is Terri Schurter, AGA 9k. I have met Terri in many US Go congresses. Terri is a very active and enthusiastic player. She also makes beautiful quilts. I want to take this opportunity to thank Terri for her help on promoting my website.”

“The Black player Azumi is Laurie Linz, AGA 8k. I met Laurie in Denver Go Congress in 2000. Wow, that was 20 years ago. Denver congress was my first US Go Congress. I remember everybody was telling me to carry water, and drink before you feel thirsty. And I was so impressed by US players enthusiasm which made me so happy to be a go teacher.”
