Toramaru - Joseki Revolution

In Joseki Revolution, Shibano focuses on local exchanges, in contrast to the predominantly whole-board focus on fuseki strategy of his previous book, Fuseki Revolution. Even so, Shibano's analysis always maintains a global view, as the basic nature of go is such that without whole-board judgement, there is no local judgement. Even when you are evaluating a joseki in a corner, a whole-board viewpoint is always essential.

Of particular interest in Joseki Revolution is his treatment of the taisha, the avalanche, and the magic-sword josekis. Shibano shows how, thanks to AI, these extremely complicated josekis have been "swamped in a wave of simplification."

In Chapter 3 Shibano discusses the merits and demerits of the four corner enclosures based on the 3-4 point. He investigates the reason why the small-knight enclosure has declined in popularity and why the previously shunned two-space enclosure has become so popular.

The book consists of 35 themes divided into four chapters as follows:

Chapter 1. Changes in basic josekis

Chapter 2. The transformation in opening strategies

Chapter 3. Up-to-date information about corner structures

Chapter 4. Looking at the most up-to-date josekis

In an appendix, Shibano examines some unconventional moyo-oriented fuseki strategies and gives some advice on how to handle these large-scale moyos. The appendix also contains a section on the revival of the high Chinese Opening and explains why this opening strategy is strategically sound.

Noguchi - L'usage de la force

L'éditeur Praxéo qui s'est spécialisé dans l'édition de livres d'initiation et de perfectionnement des jeux de stratégie asiatiques notamment, nous propose un nouvel opus sur le jeu de go, L'Usage de la Force,  voici ci-dessous, le message de l'auteur Motoki Noguchi, 7-dan et quintuple champion de France

La force, essence du go, critère absolu de direction de jeu, révélée et déclinée par deux proverbes connus de tous : « Un coup urgent avant un gros coup » et « Jouer loin de la force ».

Dans ce cinquième opus, nous faisons de nouveau appel à Sensei et Ludo qui vous ont accompagnés dans Le langage des pierres et Tsumego. Ludo a progressé, il est motivé, il joue en club et en ligne. Malheureusement, son niveau stagne. Il faut dire que Ludo a des tas d’occupations, et pas assez de temps à consacrer au go pour affiner son jeu. Au Japon, on dirait que Ludo est un « gros paresseux » !

Pendant vingt ans de pédagogie en France, j’ai rencontré beaucoup de Ludo. C’est pourquoi je relève le défi de vous donner les clés pour développer un style simple et efficace.

Ouweleen/Brouwer Weird and wonderful Volume 1

As go players we all study the game in our own way, be it leisurely or with near-scientific precision. We attempt to distill the moves and find their essence in recurring, understandable patterns. But every once in a while we are struck by a move we have never seen before. A move that is so out of the ordinary that we cannot help but marvel at it. A move to remember. This book is a collection of such moves: the weird and wonderful of go. The first volume bundles together highlights from professional games. Our main selection criterion was that the moves had to surprise: sometimes a move shone at us like an undiscovered gem and other times a sequence looked so bizarre that it made us laugh. Another prerequisite was that the moves were played by humans. Our aim for this book is to share the beauty of human creativity. 246 pages
