Member’s Edition: Lessons with Kaz: Attach-and-Extend Joseki III

Monday August 5, 2013


Published in the August 6, 2013 edition of the American Go E-Journal.

This lesson continues with important insights into the attach-and-extend joseki, which is often written incorrectly in some or many of the joseki books published in Japan.  The target audience is 20 kyu – 3 dan.  This lesson should be easier than two previous lessons.  Kyu players finding some parts difficult should ignore that part and learn only things they can understand.

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.
