IGS-PandaNet launched a new subscription service called "The IGS-PandaNet Mail Magazine", in June 2001.
The IGS-PandaNet Mail Magazine is a new service in which commentaries given by professionals on games that you, our members, play on the IGS PandaNet Internet Go Server (IGS), are sent by e-mail to all subscribers.
Each month several games will be selected completely at random from the games played on IGS-PandaNet. Top Japanese professionals will analyze them in detail. These commentaries will then be sent to you by e-mail three times a month (two games with each mailing).
