Another Go Blog

'Ed goes nuts playing go' is worth it for the title alone. Hehehe.

On a serious note, there seems to be a recurrant theme running through most, if not all, go blogs; that of pain and suffering. Anguish. Torment.

And for good reason. Any serious go player, amateur or pro, has committed himself to studying and playing a game that he will never, never understand, no matter how long he lives or how many problems he solves. Yet, he will never be able to leave the goban; it will follow him in and out of consciousness, hanging like demon-monkey, haunting and taunting. Giving only enough to keep him at the board, grinding stones like teeth.

Go is intellectual crack cocaine.
