Graded Go Problems for Dan Players, Vol. 1 1

232 pages, paperback, Kiseido, 1. edition 2009.

Incl. 7% Tax, excl. Shipping Cost

The single most important task for kyu players who wish to reach dan level is to master the basic life-and-death patterns. Noth­ing has greater influence on the outcome of a game than a blunder that lets a group die or lets a dead enemy group live. When asked to advise weak players how to become stronger, professionals with­out exception stress the importance of developing your reading ability by studying the basic life-and-death positions that come up in actual play.

This book provides kyu players with the essential grounding in the basic life-and-death techniques that they need to develop deeper and more accurate reading and the knowledge that they need to com­pete as dan players. The level of the problems starts at around 5-kyu and works up to 3-dan level, with the majority in the 1- to 3-dan bracket. Dan players will also gain invaluable practice from review­ing the problems assembled here.

This book combines in one volume translations of two Japanese compilations.
