Member’s Edition: Lessons with Kaz, On Fighting (part VIII)

Tuesday April 16, 2013


Published in the April 16, 2013 edition of the American Go E-Journal.

In this wrapup lesson on fighting, Kaz gives a few more fighting examples and explanations, along with a review of the previous lessons on fighting.  Even mid-dan players regularly make mistakes in these fighting situations, but any player from 12 kyu to 4 dan can benefit from this lesson.

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.  For more material and information, e.g., what a $30 mistake is, see Kaz’s website.
