(Rec.: For all who might miss the events we will record the live streaming you can watch later in the ASR archive )– See also the infos about the November prizes with our post on ASR’s website here:

Congrats to the winners: karnickel (who won one teaching game with Guo Juan (5P) in January 2017), soutkin, GoDave89, Snizhka, Nachtmahr, kwinin, Hyperman1, fightordie, junkie + nut… and tks to all the other active players making the ASR room a lively place for our Go studies.

– ASR’s new “Rookie Challenge Contest” (pre-announcement) …

Beside the registrations of 105 Go players in November we had the pleasure to welcome another seventeen (17), who yet do not fulfill the minimum standards to play in the regular ASR league. – In total we count now 37 so called “candidates”.

The ASR Team worked over last weeks to setup a new platform for these “beginners”… as the ASR – Advanced Study Room shall not become an elitist place only for advanced players.

Please take notice about the new “ASR Rookie Challenge” which will start on 11th December. Infos on ASR’s website here:

We wish all our league members (for now >385) great Go games in the league month December ! – Keep active for your personal Go studies during the Advent season.

Warm greetings / The ASR team
/ ASR – Advanced Study Room /
