I have a feeling that one of the coworkers that I've recently introduced to Go will get a lot better than me very quickly. He seems to have a talent for reading tactical fights that I lack.
It's the same sort of habit of making blindingly stupid tactical errors that one a major reason I never got anywhere with chess. I'm not sure what to do about it, maybe just keep practising at Go problems. At least I'm playing again reasonably frequently, after a several month lapse.
