In go there are various capturing techniques which require sacrificing stones. Most beginners fail to see these moves. Even advanced players might overlook them if they don't pay attention. Mastering these techniques equips a player with powerful weapons for both attack and defense. In addition, the training in visualization that we get by studying these tactical finesses will serve us in good stead even in more straightforward positions.

Generally, there are the following three kinds of sacrifice techniques, each of which is devoted a chapter:

1) Under the Stones (Ishi-no-shita)- This spectacular technique involves allowing your opponent to make a seemingly decisive capture in order to set up a recapture, thereby forming an eye, taking territory or forcing ko.

2) Killing Oversized Eyes (Nakade)- With this technique you also sacrifice some stones in order to then make a placement at the vital point inside the resulting oversized eye. In most cases this reduces the nakade to only one eye, but in certain positions you can convert the whole nakade into a single false eye. You are no doubt familiar with such unsettled shapes as the pyramid-four, bulky-five and flowery-six. However, if the defender's position has certain defects, you can even sacrifice larger shapes which are related to these basic patterns.

3) Other Sacrifice Techniques- Concerning various ways of using throw-ins to force your opponent into shortage of liberties or make false eyes.

This book provides thorough training in the three types of techniques listed above. By working through the following reading problems, you can practice these skills and improve your level of play.
