    in my opinion it is the oriental game called GO
    the best computer GO programs are just now defeating professional GO players
    I suck worse at GO than I do at chess

    An interesting aspect of Go in my experience is how clearly a difference in level of ability leads to very unforgiving outcomes. In this respect, it reminds me of games like table tennis and squash.

    interesting thing about playing Go is that I would often be crushed and not even know it
    at least in chess, I know when things are going horribly wrong

    Yes. You think you're clinging on and doing alright, but then there's the denouement when the reality of every weak location on the board is resolved and it's like the combined fleet of the G'Gugvuntt and Vl'hurg arriving at the Earth.

    it's like putting on inflatable arm bands as you watch the 50 metre high tsunami wave approach the shore.
