Go is a game that two people play with a Go board and Go stones. The players take turns putting black and white stones on the board to surround area, or territory. Whoever has more territory at the end of the game is the winner. No one can say really what Go is, how you should play it, what it ought to mean to you. That can only be a personal discovery, perhaps with the aid of a native guide pointing out the features of the terrain. Learn to play Go. It is simple, but it is not easy. It is worth the time you spend on it. This is to be expected of the best kind of game.
Janice Kim was born in Illinois in 1969. She became the first female student at the Korean Go Academy in 1983 and entered the professional dan ranks in Korea in 1987, the first Westerner ever to do so. She won the Fuji Women's Championship in 1984, took second place in the World Youth Championship in 1985, and third place in the EBS Cup in 1994. She was promoted to 3 dan in 2003. After graduating from New York University, Ms. Kim authored the five books of the Learn to Play Go series and founded the online Go company Samarkand. In 2008, in an effort to explore similarities in strategy games, she played in the World Poker Tour's Women's Championship in Las Vegas and placed fourth.
