I have been watching all of your videos since late last year. I'm a little behind, not having watched the last few, but I will catch-up fairly soon.

I tend to get the most from your Seattle club  lecture series, although your user game reviews and plays against patrons are also very informative.

I also enjoyed the reviews of several of the 'famous' games - the ladder game, Go Seigen, and the others.

I'm a beginner, and I'd like to see you address some slightly more advanced topics, like thickness versus being heavy - I find the terms confusing.

Often you cover the games up through the mid-game. I think I'd like to see more addressing the end-game - although I understand that beginners need to work more on the opening strategies before worrying about end-games.

For the problem series, I always pause the screen and work out the solution before you proceed. I have a suggestion for these - often the camera angles are being adjusted while you continue, so it makes it hard to pause. If you could take a short break until things are set up properly that would be great.

Keep up the great work, overall your approach and explanations are right on at my level of play.


EDIT: I've also re-watched many of your lectures, particularly the ones on joseki.


EDIT #2: It always puzzled me that your magnetic board has numerics in English numbers and the other side is Chinese or Japanese characters. Can't you paste over the chinese and put in roman alphabetics (A through T)? That would conform better to other graphics and make it easier for your classmates to mention a board position.
