Teaching Events

Most of these events are whole-day events (typically 10:00 am – 4:00 pm), although some are half-day events associated with a tournament. We have some advice for those intending to run such an event. A typical event will include:

  • Analysis of participants’ games
  • Analysis of professional games
  • Some important life-and-death problems
  • Yose (endgame) workshop
  • Dealing with moyos (large territorial frameworks)

Additional topics can be arranged by request. A typical event will have between 12 and 20 participants, with 2 teachers. For some topics the students will be divided into 2 sections by strength.

With the exception of the Strong Player’s weekend, each event will be run by strong British Go players who are accredited by the Association. The Strong Player's weekend is restricted by numbers (and strength) and normally has a professional in charge, Guo Juan for the last few years.

There's normally a half-day teaching event at Penzance on the morning of the Saturday of the Cornwall tournament in September and also on the afternoon preceding the British Go Congress in March/April.

We are looking for hosts to hold teaching events - we can provide the teacher if you can provide the venue. Please contact teaching-events@britgo.org

Details of teaching events will be found in the Tournament Calendar.

Guideline fees are:-

  • Half day £ 5.00
  • Full day £ 8.00

These fees will be doubled if the teacher is of Professional strength.
