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. Here is 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 BGA. The BGA has a system for accrediting teachers.

In 2011 there will be a half-day teaching event at Penzance on the morning of Saturday September 10.

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 £ 4.00
  • Full day £ 7.50

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