The Style of Lee Changho
71 Seiten, kartoniert, Slate & Shell, 1. Auflage 2007
This is the first in a series of books about the specific playing styles of some of the most famous go professionals. Though most Western players have heard of such famous players as Lee Changho and Go Seigen, few have any real understanding or appreciation of each professional's individual playing style. This series is an effort to remedy this situation. In each volume, Yuan Zhou, one of the top US amateurs and an experienced go teacher, author, and lecturer, presents two games of a particular player with a very detailed analysis that focuses on clarifying what is distinctive about their style of play. Readers will find that this is not only illuminating for understanding what it means to speak of a playing style, it also leads to an enhanced appreciation and understanding of the game itself.
The game analyses in these books began as informal presentations at Zhou's home to a high kyu and a low dan player: Ben Armitage 1 dan and Bill Cobb 4 kyu. They occasionally contribute comments and responses to questions from Zhou. The books were prepared from video tapes of these sessions.
