Problem: Black to play.
Note that the board situation is not the same as my previous lessons.

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.

Kaz plans to start “Kaz Go Services” soon, for yet another way to improve your game. Watch http://www.kazsensei.com for developments. And see Kaz’s latest go advice on his blog at http://kazsensei.seesaa.net, or http://www.kazsensei.com/faq.

In this lesson, Kaz presents more variations on shapes from which his Onion Tesuji arises. Players from 10 kyu to 4 dan make mistakes in these practical positions.
