LESSONS WITH KAZ: Dangers of the quasi-hane (4/4/2011)

Monday April 4, 2011

Sometimes a hane is not a hane. Sometimes it’s a “hane-dashi,” which is not a tesuji, but a mistake. Kaz calls it “quasi-hane” and in today’s Lesson he shows why it’s a mistake. Please jump to W20 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.
