Two New Books from Kiseido and Bozuliuch Launches Online Series

Sunday March 1, 2015

Kiseido has just released two new books and launched an online series of essays by Richard Bozulich. In The 2014 Ten-Game Match between Gu2015.03.01_Kiseido-Ten-Game Match Li and Lee Sedol Part Two, Michael Redmond 9P and Rob van Zeijst is the second volume of the historic match between two rivals who have dominated go in the first decade of the 21st century.  The contrast in style and strategies “are what make the 2015.03.01_Kiseido-Tesujisgames in this book especially fascinating and give birth to innovative moves and spectacular fights,” says Kiseido.

Richard Bozulich’s The Road Map to Shodan, Volume Four; A Survey of the Basic Tesujis aims at helping readers develop their intuition, which “plays a role in your ability to instantly find the key move that turns the position in your favor” though of course “Of course the player must confirm that it is indeed the required tesuji by the brute-force reading out of the continuation after the tesuji is played.”

Appropriately, The Interplay of Intuition and Brute-Force Analysis in the Game of Go is the first in a series of essays Richard Bozulich is writing on various go topics. If you are interested in receiving them as they appear, send your email address to kiseido@yk.rim.or.jp.

 

Your Move/Readers Write: Where to Watch Go? More on That Old Go Photo

Sunday March 1, 2015

Where to Watch Go? “I have been playing go since ~2003, when I started playing in college for fun,” writes Ben Scheyer. “As I’ve gotten older, I have less time to play on places like KGS, but I would still like to do things like watch games while eating or on my phone. Unfortunately, I can’t find anywhere with a collection of games to watch online! Your YouTube channel has only a few computer games from a year ago, and it’s very difficult to search for. There must be dozens of go games going on in the world, and I can find hundreds of hours of games like Starcraft II and League of Legends online. If you have any advice for where I can find games that would allow me to watch online on a consistent basis, I would appreciate it.”2015.03.01_US-Westerns

More on That Old Go Photo: “It is ironic that the E-Journal would publish this photo (Go Filmmakers Looking for US Go Congress Photos, Videos 2/16) with the wrong info, since it is originally from the Journal,” writes Keith Arnold. “The August 1985 issue to be precise.  It is a photo of the 1985 Westerns which took place on Labor Day weekend 1985 in San Francisco. Sharp eyes will recognize pros Jimmy Cha and Chun Sam Jho in the center of the picture, while future pro Janice Kim sits in the front, second from the left.  I believe I see Richard Dolen, Hal Small, Ron Snyder, Ned Phipps, Joanne Phipps, Chris Kirschner, Stu Horowitz and Herb Doughty. There is no photo credit, but the ‘St. Clair’ mentioned by Mike Bull (1st US Go Congress, Not 2/19) is referenced as the event’s t-shirt designer.”
