      July 2010 Workshop with Janice Kim 3P

Registration for this workshop is now closed.

Picture of Janice Kim Bay Area Go Players Association is pleased to present an educational Go workshop with Janice Kim, 3 Dan Professional.

This two-day workshop will be held Saturday, July 24 and Sunday, July 25, 2010 in San Francisco, near the San Francisco Go Club. The workshop is open to Go players 15 kyu and stronger. Material is presented as an exploration of different viewpoints so that players of all levels can interact with the material at their level and break down barriers to progress.

Scene from a past Janice Kim workshop The workshop will include lectures, game analysis, interactive exercises, and question and answer sessions. Workshop students will turn in sample records of their games before the workshop begins so that Janice Kim can customize workshop content specifically to the needs of each student. Review your games and add your own comments to the records, including what you feel are your and your opponent's best five moves in the game, and your reasoning. The best game review (judged on the basis of quality of level-appropriate questions and clear reasoning, not "correctness") will receive a mysterious, elaborate silk box containing a special prize. You are encouraged to submit two records to double your chances of winning. Scene from a past Janice Kim workshop

The workshop is divided into sessions so you can still attend the workshop even if you cannot make it to one of the sessions. There will also be an optional no-host dinner with Janice Kim Saturday night at a nearby Korean restaurant.

Janice Kim is co-author of the award-winning book series Learn to Play Go, and her monthly lectures at the San Francisco Go Club are very popular. Janice Kim is one of only a few western women to be recognized as a professional by the Korea Baduk Association. Picture of Janice Kim
