All about Joseki
114 Seiten, kartoniert, Slate & Shell, 1. Auflage 2004
This guide to understanding joseki is the result of a collaboration between two very popular and highly successful go teachers, Mingjiu Jiang pro 7 dan and Guo Juan pro .5 dan. The idea for this project emerged from a series of joint lectures given on KGS by Mr. Jiang and Ms Guo. Some of the material in this book is drawn from those lectures, though most of it was specially prepared for this study.
The book uses a series of amateur games to illustrate issues about joseki. In the first part, mistakes in joseki sequences are analyzed and corrected, while in the second part the problem of choosing the correct joseki for the board situation is the focus. The aim is to help players understand what joseki are all about: why particular joseki take the forms they do, and why some joseki work better in particular situations than others do. The key is to grasp the principles that guide the development and choice of joseki. These experienced teachers know how to help you do that.
