First Day

First day of Go camp!

I won my first league game today!  My opponent was Arthur Touchard from Paris:

I played the Yunguseng opening.  I made a mistake coming out with my group, so he cut me off, which was a good result for him.  Later, he made a reading mistake and resigned.  Here it is, with a few comments from Maeda-sensei:

In the afternoon, we had lectures by Maeda-sensei (introducing our homework) and then by two pros, Frances Meyers 1P and Takami Hoshikawa 4P.

After the lectures, they did teaching games.  I got to play a simul game vs. Takami Hoshikawa.  I think all 4 of us might have won our games (not sure what happened in Gabby's game), which makes it seem like that might have been intentional.  We did have large handicaps (he gave me 5 stones) but still...  Anyway, here's the game.
