GO move flow chart

A lot of my beginners, struggle with how to decide what is the best move to play each turn, with the result that they often make ‘slack’ or inefficient moves that they simply don’t need to play. This is not a criticism, as we all do this, whatever our level. To help them establish a sense of order and priority I created this flow chart and ask them to use it as a mental check list.

As a double digit Kyu, you don’t need to go through this before every move (apart from the urgent check, which you should make before every stone is played!) but it is useful to run through it every five to ten moves as it builds the habit of checking and knowing what is the balance of points?

Try it for a few games and see if it helps
