Sunday May 14, 2017

“In this game from 1670 Honinbo Dosaku plays White against Yasui Chitetsu, his major rival in the Yasui house,” says Michael Redmond 9p in this video commentary, hosted by Chris Garlock of the AGA E-Journal. “In this game I will comment on Dosaku’s brilliant sabaki in the early middlegame, in a position that I find to resemble the way Master invaded the Chinese opening in games 22 and 48.”

Episode 2: Honinbo Dosaku 9P v. Kikukawa is the latest in the new series of video commentaries with Michael Redmond 9P and Chris Garlock, Managing Editor of the American Go E-Journal.

In today’s commentary, Redmond and Garlock take a look at a 347-year-old game that not only features the move that 2017.03.08_Redmond's Reviews Episode 2Kobayashi Koichi 9P said changed his life, but includes moves that Master — the latest version of AlphaGo — played in its recent 60-win sweep of top professionals. Go history in the making!

Honinbo Dosaku (1645~1702) was by far the strongest player of his time, and is still considered to be one of the strongest players in go history. He made important contributions to go strategy for the opening, laying the foundations for the following golden period of progress for go.
