Kaz is offering a “Special Services” in his lessons,  and a testimonial. In this lesson, Kaz details an all too common example of a bad shape that can handicap a player with worry for much of a game. Kaz’s bad and good shape examples come with sequences that show how later follow-up moves are likely to impact those shape.

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”. Visit his newly improved website, including the advice column.
