Dear members of ASR league, dear Go friends!
The last month has set new records of activity and total number of games since the launch of the new website in April. It really motivates the ASR team to continue working hard – Many thanks !
The October league has been highly competitive with 83 players active (reaching the minimum of 4 games) and a total of 412 games at the end of the month ! – 57 of them played by GoDave89, who still took time to review most of his games. An example to follow.
Have you missed 5 Pro dan Guo Juan’s teaching last month ? Our favorite teacher will be back very soon ! – We will have two teachings in November as the September prize was postponed. Keep alert for the official announcements.
… within the different league divisions – Congrats !

All winners should get in touch with me (aka litchee) before the 15th of November to get their prizes. (Rec.: You easily can use the contact form on the ASR website here I get a copy directly via email.)
Please think about that if you buy Go materials and equipment from our partner Go Game Guru the ASR League gets a 10% cut. – Buy a new Goban, Go stones or book series online there and it will support a safely future of ASR – Advanced Study Room. We have expenses to pay (e.g. bandwidth + server costs, software license, legal advice, tax consultancy, programming/coding, design) as every NGO project has to.
It’s a win-win situation for both: you can progress in Go more easily, and ASR can live on by your donation ? – Check out other ways to support the ASR League.
Let’s play another great month of Go in November !
