Korean Insei League on KGS - Join now! (updated on Dec31)


Korean-style Insei League on KGS.

 

They have almost the same system in largest Korean schools: Heo Jahghei, 9p academy, Kwon Kapmyuns academy, Yangchun Dail, Lee Sedols school and others

There are 5 groups: A, B, C, D and E. A is the strongest one

Students of 10-kyu and stronger are allowed taking part

 

Each group consists of 10 students, who play with each other (maximum 4 games per month with the same opponent) and 2 teachers (teachers dont meet with each other). There is no pairing students can meet each other any time and put the results in online table, which counts the winning % and current places automatically.

 Teachers usually play their games simultaneously on 4-5 boards.  They play even games with A group members, 2-stones games with B group, 3-stones games with C group, 4 stones games with D group and 5 stones with E group

 

There are 2 teachers, both studied Go in Korea for a very long time:

1. Alexander Dinerchtein, 3p (breakfast on KGS) the owner of the peaceful playing style he will teach you how to play well in fuseki and yose.

     

2. Ilya Shikshin 7d (roln111 on KGS) with the aggressive playing style he will make you  stronger at fighting.

 

You will see that they have completely different styles of playing handicap games.

 

At the end of the each month best 2 students (with highest winning %) promote to the next group, and 2 students with less impressive results go down.

 

The entry fee is 95 usd/ month (including 8 simultaneous games, 16 lectures and up to 11 reviews)

 

All groups have own prize fund, made from entry fees:

A group: 1-place: 200$, 2-place: 100$, 3-place: 50$

B, C, D, E groups: 1-place: 100$, 2-place: 50$

 

Places are decided by the highest winning percentage. To win the prize you have to play

at least 10 games (from 44 possible games) per month with at least 5 different opponents

 

Teachers can take cash prizes too, so they are also interested in winning their games in simultaneous. Teachers are not allowed to take prizes, if they play less than 60% of all games. Also teachers have big bonuses, if they play 80, 90 and 100% of all games - you can be sure, that each teacher will try to play as many games as possible (to get these bonuses)

 

Time control:

30 min + 30 sec byoyomi- 5 times for insei vs insei games

30 min + 60 sec byoyomi -5 times for for simultaneous

 

At the end of the each year the student, who showed best results (who won A-league most times) will get a 1000$ grant, which can be used for private lessons, offline study trips to Korea, Japan or China, Go books or Go equipment. Teachers are not allowed to get this grant.

 

 25% of your games will be reviewed offline by Alexander Dinerchtein. More games you play more reviews you get! You will get these reviews once a week by e-mail.

 

**********************************************

We plan to start the league from Jan, 1 2010


4 professional players (Chun Pongjho 8p, An Younggil 8p, Lee Hajin 3p and Cho Mikyung 1p) joined the project as lectors. They will review your games online in audio format. We will have 16 lectures in total every month. Alexander Dinerchtein, 3p will give some lectures too, including 4 lectures in Russian


Last week-end of the month is for Blitz games.
If you was very busy during the month, you can play lot of blitz games at the end and get your reviews.
Main time control for last Saturday and Sunday of every month is 3 times shorter than usual:
10 min, 30 sec byoyomi - 5 times for insei vs insei games
10 min, 60 sec byoyomi - 5 times for simultaneous


 For registration please e-mail us (backpast@gmail.com) these details:

1.Name

2.KGS ID

3.Country

4.Rank (you must be 10-kyu or stronger!)

5.Goal in Go

6.Preferred method of payment (Paypal, Moneybookers,Webmoney, WesternUnion etc)


 

 December 12: We already accepted 50 players. We don't plan to add more groups, so others will be in the waiting line.

Our waiting line is unusual.  If you pay early, but there are no empty places available, you are allowed to observe all audio lectures free of charge till you join us in February or March, when we get vacant places.

If we decide to stop the project, you will get 100% money back.

So, still accepting new members!


December 29:
If you have an account on DGS and prefer slow games,
you can get your teaching games here, instead of KGS. You can play all 8 games (or just few)
with both teachers at the same time for an extra fee $2 per game.
Time control must be set as 30 days absolute (no byoyomi, with clocks
running on week-ends).
It means about 3-4 moves per game every day.
Such games will be count as standard simultaneous games on KGS and
must be played on the standard handicap for your division.
On DGS you can also meet the members of your group - we accept
the results of such games. As you may know we also accept offline games -
you can play even in the local club (if you live in the same city)
- but please write and upload the SGF of your game (at least 100 moves)

December 31:
Everything is ready. Our website: http://insei-league.com/

I quoted your remark at breakfast time in the news at EuroGoTV.com. Congratulations on filling up KILL - Korean-style International Live League!

Nice to hear about the 40 players. I suggest you dont make plans for making it bigger until its running.

These 40 players havent paid yet, and after 2 months there is high probability of drop-outs.

2009-12-07 07:12
We already have more than 40 registered players from 7d to 10k.
Will probably add more groups, more lectures. Will even think about making the prizes in top groups biggers.

Still accepting new members!
