About Shogi Ladder

Shogi (Teaching) Ladder is a club on 81Dojo [1], it is open to players at all levels from novice to expert. The club organizes a “learning tournament” once a week, open to all club members who have a rating on 81Dojo (having played at least 5 rated games). The club has over 170 players from over 35 different countries. New players are joining all the time.

At the end of the registration period (typically, Thursday/Friday), the tournament organizer will match players with each other. Each player will play two rated (even) games, one with a player ranked above them, and one with a player ranked below them. The players should schedule these games in a mutually convenient time between Friday-Monday (UTC time), preferably by using the discord channel [2]. At the end of the game, the players will analyze it together and try to help each other improve. This post-game analysis is key, it is the teaching/learning part of the teaching ladder.

Playing regularly and analyzing your games is one of the best ways to improve. To join the club, simply follow the link [1] and ask to join; you will be notified of the weekly tournaments via email (sent to the address you provided 81Dojo when you registered).

We hope to see you there!
