AlphaGo vs. AlphaGo with Michael Redmond 9p: Games 51 & 52

Tuesday September 14, 2021

If you’ve been following Michael Redmond’s videos on his YouTube channel, you’ll know that in his commentaries on the 3-3 invasion “there’s one variation I’ve avoided because it’s so complicated.” In today’s commentary on AlphaGo vs. AlphaGo Game 52 with EJ Managing Editor Chris Garlock (which originally aired live on September 5), he explores that variation in detail, along with his usual insightful and deeply-researched insights into the rest of the game. “Always great to see a new AlphaGo review pop up in my YouTube feed, when I missed the Twitch stream,” says Rory Mitchell. Speaking of which, in case you missed it, AlphaGo vs. AlphaGo Game 51 — which aired live on August 8 — was posted August 20, and features “Tesujis, Semiaias, Forever Kos and Fuzzy Sekis,” according to Damon Skinner. “This game is even more complicated and deep than we imagined.” Mark your calendar now for the next live Redmond game commentary, set for Sunday, October 10, 7p ET on the AGA Twitch channel.
