In this no komi game between low dan players, Yuan Zhou covers examples of the importance of when to play and protect cuts. But the main focus of the game is how to split and attack White’s groups, after White invades Black’s upper framework.

Yuan Zhou 7 dan is one of the strongest players in the US. He has won many titles. Zhou is also a popular teacher, lecturer, and author. He lives in Germantown, MD, and can be reached at yuan.zhou@zhouyuan.com . This commentary is typical for Zhou, who has published several books, including such thorough commentaries of pro games at Slate & Shell (www.slateandshell.com).
