Bozulich - The Art of Settling Stones

During the opening stages of the game the players stake out positions and more or less divide the board. Normally each player wants to win and take just over 50% of the board. This usually involves a balance between safety and risk; that is, making a safe and non-invadable extension or an extension that is slightly farther and limits the opponent’s territory. The drawback of the latter is that the position now becomes invadable. This usually means that when an invasion takes place, the invading stones do not have enough space to make an extension that guarantees life. That, in turn, means the invader has to run away. However, running away is not always the best strategy as it is one-sided — that is, it allows your opponent to harass the run-away stones while securing territory and building influence. Often it is far better to make the beginnings of eye-shape — to breathe life into the invading stones — before running away. In other words, ‘to make sabaki.’ The numerous examples and 122 problems taken from professional games, will introduce the readers to all the techniques that may be required to achieve sabaki in almost any position that might arise in their games. 201 pages

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.

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

BOZULICH - The Basics of Go Strategy

Aji, kikashi, et sabaki sont les concepts les plus importants du Go. Ils imprègnent le jeu de subtilités stratégiques inégalées dans n'importe quel autre jeu. Sans une réelle compréhension de ces concepts, aucun joueur de Go ne peut espérer atteindre un niveau élevé. A côté de ces concepts, il est également nécessaire de comprendre la place et la distribution des pierres et comment elles influencent d'autres parties du plateau, déterminant quelles pierres peuvent être sacrifiées, et quelles pierres doivent être renforcées avant de jouer des mouvements stratégiques à grande échelle. Composé de huit chapitres d'explication et de 100 problèmes accompagnés des solutions détaillées, ce livre donnera au lecteur le vrai sens de la beauté stratégique du Go.

A Dictionary of Modern Fuseki : the Korean Style

Dictionnaire de fuseki, re. Mais autant le Rin Kaiho dépasse de beaucoup ce simple programme, autant celui-ci - dont le titre est une double pétition de principe, puisque l'ouvrage date de 2000 (d'où le moderne) et est d'origine coréenne (d'où le style) - s'y cantonne sans fioritures inutiles. On retrouve donc une approche classique : 59 schémas de base (appartenant essentiellement aux ouvertures linéaires et à la famille des ouvertures chinoises) représentés chacun par quelques variantes présentées sur une trentaine de coups et accompagnées d'un court commentaire. Solide, lisible et récent, un bon complément au petit dictionnaire de la Nihon Ki-in.

KAGEYAMA - Lessons in the Fundamentals of Go, 268 p.

Un livre dont le succès ne s'est jamais démenti depuis sa parution voici trente ans, tant grâce à son style direct, familier et divertissant qu'à sa capacité à mettre l'accent sur tel ou tel point essentiel - et à l'enfoncer avec une parfaite efficacité dans le crâne du lecteur. Sans avoir vocation à remplacer les manuels de l'Elementary Go Series (250 pages peuvent difficilement en dire autant que 1200), l'opus de Toshiro Kageyama en constitue en revanche le compagnon tout trouvé, à la fois éclairant et rafraîchissant. Et en plus, il tient dans une poche de veste...
