The Saturday Kickabout and Go

This weekend on The Saturday Kickabout we spoke to Dave Lorking from the Billericay Go Club.

Go is one of the world's oldest board game and is thought to have originated in Chiner about 3000 years ago.
Dave spoke about the professional players in Japan, on a par with Premier League footballers in England. The game itself is complex in nature, so much so that no Go playing computer program which can defeat even an average club player.

Billericay Go Club meet every Monday from 7.30 to 11pm and don't charge any fees.  More information is available by visiting their website by clicking here.
