Double Hane is a blog about the board game Go (other names are weiqi or baduk). It will be a place to share my thoughts about the game and discuss all things Go.
Double Hane is not the blog of a high dan player. I'm in the process of becoming single digit kyu right now and Double Hane's purpose is to shed light on the game from a beginners's perspective - mine. I plan to document and discuss my thoughts, errors and improvements and I hope this will be of interest to other players too. Maybe someday it will even help someone to overcome hurdles I now still have to face.
I plan to update the blog at least once per weak.
Why the name 'Double Hane'?
There is a number of reasons why I've chosen the name 'Double Hane' for this blog.
1) The double hane holds a special significance for me. At the very beginning of my 'go career', one of the very first Josekis I learned was the standard sequence following the 3-3 invasion.
2) I like the double hane, because it demonstrates fighting spirit and can literally turn a game around. I myself often fail miserably when trying to apply it in my games, but I can already sense the willingness to fight behind the move in games I study.
3) It sounds cool, does it not? ;)
