Member’s Edition: Lessons with Kaz – Risk vs. Reward

Tuesday July 17, 2012


Published in the July 10, 2012 edition of the American Go E-Journal.

Play through this partial game from one of my students to find and solve several problems of difficulty ranging from intermediate kyu to mid dan level.

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 for developments.  And see Kaz’s latest go advice on his blog.

In this lesson, Kaz presents clear cut examples of weighing risk vs. reward.  And along the way, Kaz throws in useful tesuji for you to know.
