Let’s learn the basics of 5-3 and stop being afraid of it!
(20)

In other courses on the opening, Go Magic has regularly recommended avoiding the 5-3 point because it can lead to some very complex and long joseki. But what do you do if your opponent plays it on you? Or, what if you like complications and you want to use it? It’s time to level up your opening!

In this course we dive into the deep waters of the 5-3 point and try to demystify the most common joseki associated with it. In the end we even discuss some opening patterns you can use and fight the AI’s unflattering opinion of this classic human move.

Suitable for: 12–3 kyu players who are already familiar with basic josekis.

Very suffering course. I feel lost. The quizz are full of questions that are not in the videos. I regret I took this course because I am more confused than before. If the josekis are complicated, you need to go into complications and not fainting it can be simple. If it is complicated, we will study and get into it. I have to buy a book now to understand the 3-5 aperture…

This course is fantastic. I'm going to try the 5-3 opening now in my games until I'm very comfortable with it. I want to learn to fight more and this seems to be a great way to learn to do so. Please make more of these wonderful courses.

I didn't get all the points but after this course i might get some in my games. I loved the classic games part. Thank you!

A great course that will give you a basic but very functional toolkit of ideas and informations to start using this uncommon opening point. Matthew's teaching style makes the course entertaining and easy to follow, he's clearly very passionate about this topic and go in general and the lessons benefit a lot from his enthusiasm.

Matthew is a great addition to the teaching team and his methodical approach to teaching basics and more in depth variation lends itself very well to the platform. The content is great as well, its a first step into the world of 5-3 with some very inspirational ideas and even manages to make the Taisha look not quite as threatening. Now if that isn't a feat.

Matt, thanks for great course! Did really enjoy the way you bring knowledge. Feels like I really improved at game understanding in some aspects after watching it. Looking forward for new courses!

Excellent course. I love unorthodox openings and this was right up my alley. I enjoy Matt's teaching style as well. The only issue I have is that Matt's goban is sideways. I can't unsee it and neither can you! I look forward to more of Matt's courses in the future.

Тут просто вот всё охрененно и подача материала, и темп, и сам материал! А еще у меня кажется теперь появилось любимое фусеки)

Необычные фусэки вдохновляют на эксперименты и мотивируют глубже изучать игру. Отличный юмор и стиль преподавания. All the points to you, Matthew, good job!

Большое спасибо Мэтью. После просмотра курса разыграл фусеки с 5-3 против своего телефона на уровне 1 кю и сразу же привез ему 16 очков. До этого всё было наоборот 🙂 Очень хороший преподаватель. Всё объясняет последовательно, логично и, что особенно важно, объективно.
