I was 7k on the last new year day. And I'm 7k now, though I have got 1k in the last May...
I have studied life-and-death problems, good sequences and so on everyday.
But there was no point at all!
That's why, I'm going to enjoy just to play games. I'll not study igo flom now. And I gave up teaching igo to my daughter. Some schools will tell her igo.
