LESSONS WITH KAZ: Reducing Liberties & Maximizing Aji (1/10/2011)

Monday January 10, 2011

Even players as strong as 2-dan are often reluctant to pressure their opponent’s weak stones, fearing counter-attack. In today’s lesson — for players 4k-2d — Kaz shows how to make the strongest move and handle the common overplay that often results. Please jump to W14 to begin the lesson.

These are lessons for go players ranging from 4-dan to 10-kyu. A longtime contributor to the American Go E-Journal, former insei Kazunari Furuyama has returned with his popular EJ column, now in sgf files and re-named Lessons with Kaz. Kaz co-authored Kiseido’s Get Strong at Joseki, volumes 2 and 3 and is now teaching on KGS Plus.
