Game records

For other sources of game records, see the list in the links section.

On this page, you can download game records of top amateur games played on the K Go Server (KGS, formerly known as the Kiseido Go Server). I am grateful to Bill Shubert, who created KGS, for the permission to use these files, and for making them available to me in an easy way.

The games in the archives below are those where either one of the players (or both) is 7d or stronger, or both are 6d. All comments are stripped from these games, and all games with variations are omitted. They are suitable for use with Kombilo.

There are several versions of each archive, compressed in different ways: a .tar.gz, .tar.bz2, and .zip version; please choose the one which is most suitable for you. The content of the uncompressed archives is completely identical.
