Theory and Practice of Tsumego
// March 31st, 2013 // News
I’m proud to announce the publication of the first book in my father’s 4-book series, The Theory and Practice of Tsumego.
Description: Unlike many books which deal with problems of life and death of groups, this book discloses the theory and philosophy behind this type of problem.
By using the theory of tsumego, Valery Shikshin teaches you how to look in the right direction for a correct solution; this will prevent you from making mistakes and, in the long run, it will save you a lot of time.
There are more than 300 tsumego problems and examples laid out in this book, emphasizing the rules behind killing and saving groups in the corners and sides, including tsumego involving seki and ko.
This book is a valuable resource to Valery and other professional trainers when working with their students, and is a must for individuals learning go without a teacher.
