In this book, Abe Yoshiteru 9 dan, a born raconteur, relates fascinating, behind-the-scenes stories of unique and unusual occurrences in the world of professional go, as well as the blunders and misreadings that sometimes arise at even the highest levels of play. Go Seigen, Sakata Eio, Fujisawa Shuko, Rin Kaiho, and many others make their appearance in this volume. (The Index of Players lists 81 names of players who appear in the book.) Amateur players will be amused at the mistakes committed by geniuses and prodigies, and perhaps reassured that even the greatest names in the history of the game sometimes make the same silly blunders that amateurs do.

Two famous games are analyzed by Abe 9 dan from top match play, and he does not spare himself from censure either: he presents some of the worst blunders he has ever made in five of his own games. In all of the positions that are given in the book, the reader can try to beat the professionals at their own game: Abe 9 dan gives the reader hints, which one can use to try to succeed where the professional has blundered, or one can just sit back and enjoy the show, as Abe 9 dan describes the background of the position and the atmosphere in the playing room as the dramatic moment occurred.

Dramatic Moments on the Go Board does for the contemporary go scene what Killer of Go did for the classical go world. It is a book that one can both enjoy and learn from, and which will deepen one's appreciation of the game.

220 pages. With Glossary and Indices.
