Twitter imploding will finally give me the excuse to throw the #ThatWasASickGoTakedown concept into the garbage... but first, a takedown #SickGoTakedowns #ThatAttemptToPopularizeGoWasMisguided #weiqi #baduk

A go board with a big capture in the middle. Dead stones marked.

Many stones working together to achieve common goals on this Labour Day #SickGoTakedowns #HolidayGoTakedowns #weiqi #baduk

A huge takedown in the lower half of the Go board. Dead stones marked.

Some games of Go are friendlier than others. LEFT: an exhibition game I played with another streamer RIGHT: an all-out scrap with an internet stranger #SickGoTakedowns #ThatWasASickGoTakedown #weiqi #baduk

A completed Go game with lots of empty space on the board. A tangled messy Go game with very little empty space left.

I am enjoying Wordle but I'd still rather post #SickGoTakedowns to the TL #weiqi #baduk

A finished Go game with the final move marked. The same game, with dead stones marked. W has lost an enormous group.

#SickGoTakedowns is getting even MORE accessible! #ThatGoTakedownHasAltText #AccessibleGoTakedowns

White's in an unsalvageable position with Black invading its left side, certain to capture one of two significant groups. It's pretty sick

A ladder seals the fate of two groups. #SickGoTakedowns #ThatWasASickGoTakedown #weiqi #baduk

A finished Go game; B resigned after the marked group is caught in a ladder.

Playing a bit of Go this Victoria Day weekend #SickGoTakedowns #HolidayGoTakedowns #weiqi #baduk

A huge W group dies in the center.

A β€œsnapback” decides the game! If W plays at K9 to capture the marked stone, B plays again at L9 to capture W's group. W resigned here. #SickGoTakedowns #ThatWasASickGoTakedown #SickGoTakedownsForBeginnerGoPlayers #weiqi #baduk

B puts W in atari, forcing the stone's own capture. B will "snap back" to capture W's group by playing in the same spot.

Did I make a whole website so that #SickGoTakedowns could be interactive? No, that would be insane

#SickGoTakedowns hasn't felt right since the pandemic hit, but I'm too invested in this brand to change it now #ThatWasASickGoTakedown #WearAMask #weiqi #baduk

Starting a Go company where I play Go every day as the main driver of business #SickGoTakedowns #ThatWasASickGoTakedown #weiqi #baduk

#SickGoTakedowns took the summer off but it appears that school is now back in session #ThatWasASickGoTakedown #weiqi #baduk #Back2School

Takedowns like this make ripples through the community. The Go press is notified #SickGoTakedowns #ThatWasASickGoTakedown #weiqi #baduk

Been a while, but getting back to the roots with this one. #SickGoTakedowns #ThatWasASickGoTakedown #weiqi #baduk

Over-complicating things for the AI and making it rage-quit. If only it knew of our rivalry. #SickGoTakedowns #EmotionlessGoAutomatons #weiqi #baduk

This by-the-book takedown ended the game, but the colossal seki is the true winner here. #SickGoTakedowns #ColossalSeki #weiqi #baduk

A sneaky late-game takedown, but unnecessary alongside a territory so monstrous #SickGoTakedowns #MonstrousGoTerritories #weiqi #baduk

DMs pour in; rabid fans clamouring for fresh takedowns. Maybe this will satisfy, temporarily #SickGoTakedowns #ThatWasASickGoTakedown #weiqi #baduk

At this point you could probably learn Go from #SickGoTakedowns alone

Not a big corner, but still a ruinous takedown #SickGoTakedowns #MinisculeGoTakedowns #weiqi #baduk

I don't play a lot of 9x9, but I tried this opening tonight and it resulted in a minuscule but decisive takedown #SickGoTakedowns #weiqi #baduk

If you've muted #SickGoTakedowns by now I don't blame you -- but if not, I think you'll agree this one is as advertised #weiqi #baduk #ThatWasASickGoTakedown

A Go takedown on this New Years Day #SickGoTakedowns #HolidayGoTakedowns #weiqi #baduk

Thought I'd lost my dragon for sure until I put together this devastating last-minute snapback #SickGoTakedowns #weiqi #baduk

Are you glad #SickGoTakedowns is back
