Go, Igo, Weiqi, Baduk Go, Igo, Weiqi, Baduk. Kaz's original Igo-advice & fundamentals of Igo: 「秀策のコスミ」= Shusaku's kosumi

「秀策のコスミ」= Shusaku's kosumi

「秀策のコスミ」= Shusaku's kosumi

Sorry that I haven't written anything these days.

I've been extremely busy... and I'm very tired today...

Last time I said "I have found many of my Go students
who incorrectly use a Go proverb at an incorrect situation

When I asked them why they did it; they answer
"Well, that's what the Go proverb says!"

One such example is "Shusaku's kosumi".

(which is not a Go proverb, but the shape
is so well-known that I thought it would
be a good example)
in Dia. 2.

Some of my iGo students did play that in my teaching

I asked them why they played it.

They confidently claimed "I did play a
Shusaku's kosumi."

"Kosumi means a diagnol shape in English."

But as you can see, the difference between
W2 in Dia. 1 and in Dia. 2 are significant.

In my eye they are completely different.

In my mind that kind of misunderstanding is
more like weak kyu players' mistake.

But those Japanese Go players never studied
Go, so I shouldn't be surprised by their

Also I've found that some adults, especially the
elderly don't watch where the opponent plays.

They only think about their next move.

So that might be another reason that
they play a fake Shusaku's kosumi.

Many of the elderly go players have a hard time
improving their Go, Igo, Wei Chi, Baduk.

BTW, there was one exception...

There was one amazing old person whom I taught years ago.

After I played a few teaching games with me,
he kept winning so many games.

I was surprised to hear that, too.

Later he wrote down how he kept winning and
handed it to me.

So next time I'm going to translate and
write on this blog about how he improved...
