Go - The oriental games of controlling territory - challenges each player to balance competing needs: to build your influence or weaken his, to secure your territory or to invade hers. Each player strives to find moves that work at multiple levels, and to counter their opponent's aims.

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 the reader gets by studying these tactical finesses will serve him or her in good stead even in more straightforward positions.

The Art of Capturing Stones is a problem book. This book provides thorough training in three types of techniques, namely, under the stones (Ishi-no-shita), killing oversized eyes (Nakade), and other sacrificing techniques. By working through the problems, the reader can practice these skills and improve his or level of play.

Table of Contents

Chapter 1 Under the Stones (Ishi-no-shita) Problems 1-32

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.

Chapter 2 Oversized Eyes (Nakade) Problems 33-65

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 an eye, but in certain positions you can convert the whole nakade into a single false eye. You are no double 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 large shapes which are related to these basic patterns.

Chapter 3 Other Techniques Problems 66-91

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

The Art of Capturing Stones is a problem book. This book provides thorough training in three types of techniques, namely, under the stones (Ishi-no-shita), killing oversized eyes (Nakade), and other sacrificing techniques. By working through the problems, the reader can practice these skills and improve his or her level of play.
