The last stage in a complete Go game is usually pretty boring, since there are less and less places to fight for, and the fights are smaller and smaller – the last one is many times a half-point fight in the final ko.

I’ve got the Jump Level Up series on it’s way bolks me already, and have high hopes for that as well. If I am right about that, it’s probable that you will also enjoy the Essential Life and Death series also from Baduktopia. It seems bookd the weiqi life and death drill books will be similar. On that note, I see that you’re still? However, this book will help you have a much more solid grasp on what is important in the early game. They are imaginative, well written, artful diagrams; large print for easy reading; concepts are organized into small segments which helps avoid information overload; concepts are repeated which helps my learning; good quality paper and binding; photos of important players are of lesser quality, and I think the books would be better without the photos, except for the photos of the authors themselves.

I do have the Lee Changho books in pdf, and like to print off a couple of pages to carry around for when I have a spare minute.

Nonetheless, there are a number of websites and articles aimed at informing western readers of the books available to them. It has built my confidence by seeing many of the situations described in the book arising in my own games. I could have done without ordering the whole 25 book set- the beginner to 10k are essentially useless to me will lend them to beginners at the cluband the joseki and opening books will likely have limited usefulness.

My impression is it’s part of the foundation, like grade school education. While the history of Go is much longer than that, it’s these past years when Go developed a lot, once it became one of the main arts in feudal Japan so that the best Go players were playing “castle games” in front of the Shogun.
