Even a professional player makes a blunder.

i like how they both pause for a moment and take in the mistake like "did that really just happen?"

I really like the way his opponent stares at him, and at the board, trying to figure whether this is some sort of a really complicated trick.

This has to be the single most stunning setback in the quest for Kami-No-Itte.

That actually kills black's entire group in the bottom left, not just the self-atari.

The look on the white player's face is amazing. On both of them actually..

Happened to me in a tournament last week-end... after seeing that, I guess it will happen again in the future. lol

I saw this and was like "oh crap did he just do that?" Then the announcers were going "ah! ah! ah!" and I cracked up. Of course I doubt I would have been able to spot it so quickly if it weren't for the description, I just started playing recently, and I'm still learning the basics :D

I almost did this last night at Go club. I noticed -right- before I took my finger off the stone.

I still lost by about 30 points though, but hey, I'm learning.

Those games must be so exhausting! Especially when they play over several days. Wow! The fact that losing concentration is rare, is amazing in itself.
They're on a totally different level than I can imagine...
:o)
Guess they're human, after all...

In Go, any stones you completely surround are captured and removed from the board. Black just played a move that allowed a large chunk of his stones to be captured. To understand just how costly this move is, however, requires you to know how to play Go. It's fun, you should learn!

Goplay i realized this as soon as i put out my post that the whole white structure is not dead because black indeed captures those 5 stones. I just took a quick analyses of it and didnt pause it like you did to take a closer look.

It has been years since when I first saw the video, but now I just had to chance to count... Yes, black was ahead; about 10-11 points (including 6.5 komi and captured stones which I assumed to be 11 to 15, black captured more) if he had played 6-8 instead of 6-10; which makes the video even more amazing :)

For non go players: The funny thing here is, that the professional player makes a mistake, which even an unexperienced amateuer go player wont make, at least with some months practise. But of course, they happen. :P You can compare it if Ronaldo would hit the air and not the ball by shooting a penalty kick. :)

Apparently I do not (^_^) I should have looked closer, my apologies.
