Member’s Edition: Lessons with Kaz: Distorted Shape

Monday November 14, 2011

Published in the November 15, 2011 edition of the American Go E-Journal

Step through this lesson to reveal six problems involving a basic shape. Kaz covers a basic shape that all kyu players should know, but even mid-dan players sometimes miss.  The lesson hammers home the same shape from several different perspectives, using his usual light-hearted prose.


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”.  Kaz co-authored Kiseido’s “Get Strong at Joseki”, volumes 2 and 3 and is now teaching on KGS Plus.

At the end of this year, Kaz is also planning to start “Kaz Go Services”, for yet another way to improve your game.
