Go Seigen's Lectures - Volume 2 - Winning a Won Game provides Three Golden
Rules with examples of their application in actual games and seven
Go Seigen games highlighting
seven examples of success. In addition Three Examples of
Failure are provided in three other
Go Seigen games.
Yesterday, a won game was lost; today, a clear lead was wasted. Is there any
secret recipe to keep the lead to the end of the game? Actually, maintaining a
lead is easy, if one can keep a cool head and make every play according to
positional judgment. On the other hand,
trying to claim a quick victory is not easy, even for professionals.
In professional games,
one often encounters situations where a game is lost after building up a commanding lead, or a game
is won by turning the tables on the opponent. The material presented in this book highlights such cases.
Among the strongest players today, Cho Chikun and Kobayashi Koichi can be
considered as the cream of the crop. Both Cho and Kobayashi disclosed that
they benefited enormously from studying
Go Seigen's some 800 games. From a young age of 10 to 25 Cho had replayed
the entire collection of Go Seigen's games three times and is currently on his
fourth. Kobayashi also even now, is still inspired by replaying Go Seigen?s
games after studying his games three times.
Both of these top-notch players recommended that the best way to get strong is
to study Go Seigen's collected games. Dear reader, if you would spend time in
studying the games in this book, you too can become a far stronger player.
Take a valuable lesson from the great Go Seigen on How to Win a Won Game.
