Member’s Edition: Lessons with Kaz: Star and 3-4 Point Josekis

Tuesday January 20, 2015


Published in the January 20, 2015 edition of the American Go E-Journal.

Kaz is offering a “Special Services” in his lessons, and a testimonial.  In this lesson, Kaz compares the same basic shape with both the star point and the 3-4 point. In both cases, the ideas are often the same, but Kaz notes where the one line difference can make a difference. Kaz stresses that knowing basic shapes is the key to improving.
