If you are interested in professional news, you should know that the second game of the Meijin title has been already played and players are now on a draw. You can see the games and some uncommented variations at “Meijin 2007 – 361points.com”. And based on the first game of this Meijin, Shorin created a very interesting entry on this blog: “Learning from professional games (1)”.

“Studying amateur games“: Discussions about the value of studying amateur games instead of professional ones. Here you’ll find the “pros” and the “cons”.
“Ladder breaker: How to respond it?“: Rable shows us a real situation from a recent game and different users discuss about possible responses for a ladder breaker move. This discussion is held at a quite high level.
