Lists with This Book. Feb 10, Malcolm Bastien rated it really liked it. The problems in Volume two are so much more difficult than in volume 1! While reviewing the solutions to problems I found myself also playing out many more of the problems gdaded see why the right answer was the correct one because I wasn’t able to as easily judge the shapes on the board. The book really highlighted how I need to visualize the board a few moves ahead too.
There were m The problems in Volume two are so much more difficult than in volume 1! There were many problems that I couldn’t get, but seemed obvious once the solution was revealed. This is a book I’m probably going to come back to in six months to a year. Only once I have “mastered” these problems will I consider graced the third volume. Much more rounded off than volume 1 and it had a graved fewer duplicate problems as well.
Jan 19, Zacharycbruce rated it it was amazing. I’ve “read” this many, many times.
Series: Graded Go Problems for Beginners
It was the first book I picked up to look through toshinori coming back from a two year break from the game. I’ve always found a lot of value in solving many, many problems, and it’s enjoyable, too.
These are quite easy, but it’s good to get back in to the swing of things. Probably would be my number 1 recommendation for anyone looking to get in to the game, after having gradex an introductory book.
Feb 14, it me rated it really liked it Shelves: Ignore the rank range. First off, some of these, especially the later ones, still give me pause for thought at 7k.
Then there is some advice I’ve been given by a lot of strong players: They come up most often in real games. Ideally you haven’t mastered them until you see the answers almost imediately.
This is what you should aim for with tsumego like this. Definitely recommended for all DDKs. I wil Ignore the rank range. I will be buying the next volume in the series. I got the paperback version but I recommend downloading the SmartGo Books app.
It offers all the Kiseido titles at about half the price of the physical copies, and you can play moves inside the diagrams though don’t use this to work out the answers, that won’t benefit your reading. Dec 01, Sebastian rated it it was amazing.
Graded Go Problems For Beginners: Volume Two: Elementary Problems by Kano Yoshinori
Rewarding for true beginner and solid foundation for more advanced players. First let me address the fact that it is said to target players from 25k to 20k. I think that the vast majority of the problems here would be really challenging for players in this range. However, if those players spend the required amount of time working out each problem and then going over the answers and understan Rewarding for true beginner and solid foundation for more advanced players.
However, if those players spend the required amount of time working out each problem and then going over the answers and understanding the common themes, they are going to improve fast.
When I started to read the book, I thought it was going to take me less than 10 second per problem to figure out the right answer I am 6 kyu. While this is true for a good portion of the problems, I did find many that required more careful reading, and even some where I went wrong. After going through the whole book it actually helped me to understand which areas I need more work on. For example, I could read the capturing races in a couple of seconds, but in the opening problems I had a harder time figuring out the correct answers.
It is pretty clear i need to study fuseki and joseki as a result of this. If that was all I got out of this book it would have already been worth reading it, but I also got more. It solidified in my mind many of the techniques that I already knew. Now I can see more clearly in which situations I need to apply specific tesujis, or at least consider them in my reading. This is a high quality collection of problems, and I think any kyu player would benefit in some way from going over it.
Feb 28, Bryce Johnson rated it really liked it. So much harder than Volume 1! Plus, it had a few terms I’d never seen before and weren’t in the glossary like “moyo”.
A lot of the problems one can still brute force with logic, but there are definitely a few that were more “feel,” in some sense Going through these has started to give me a sense of shape though, which is interesting. Maybe one day I’ll actually play another game of go I also think that if I read this again I will keep a list So much harder than Volume 1! I also think that if I read this again I will keep a list of which ones I got right and wrong for future reference.
Jan 09, Peter Riboprotein rated it really liked it Shelves: The problems are fast to go through, and they help train you to recognize a handful of common sequences.
As an AGA 11kyu, most of the problems too a little too easy for me. Sep 26, Jason marked it as to-read. Going back to the library yosbinori now, it’s just too advanced for me.
