Member’s Edition: Lessons with Kaz: Peeps VI

Tuesday February 18, 2014


Published in the February 18, 2014 edition of the American Go E-Journal.

Kaz will re-start private teaching soon for students of all ages.  Under his teaching, even 70 year old single digit kyu students have improved as much as 3 rankings after just a year.  For private lesson details, please email Kaz at

In this E-Journal lesson, Kaz uses a pro game to show how they peep.  This game is between Cho U 9p (Black) and Yuki Satoshi 9p in the final round of the 61st Oza tournament, played in November, 2013.  Kaz says, “I’m not going to comment on pros’ moves.  Their levels are beyond clouds.  I could never understand what they are thinking.”  But Kaz does point out things like, “this is too hard for kyu players to learn”, and “3 dan amateur players should learn this tesuji”, etc.

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”.
