Go Problems

Go Stones Never Age19,90 €

"The best way for amateurs to learn how to become stronger is to improve their sense of fuseki, to develop their reading skills, and to have a clear understanding of life and death. This ability to read and understand life-and-death can be improved by memorizing the shapes of tsumego (alive, dead, and unconditional). This is a great advantage in short games such as tournaments, and can bring you closer to the top class of amateurs." Go Seigen

Banri Ikku24,90 €

Ohashi Hirofumi was ten years old when he first got hands on Hatsuyoron, Dosetsu Inseki Inoue’s famous problem collection. When he looked at the problems inside, it was as if a current of electricity ran through him; the originality of the shapes and the vividness of the move sequences born from them felt like an explosion of art. From that day, composing go problems has been an integral part of Ohashi‘s life.

180 Tsumego13,90 €

What is the most important skill in Go?
It is the ability to calculate variations. In the middle game, about eighty percent is reading power, the rest is intuition. To improve your reading, it is essential to practice life-and-death problems.

Keep Fit!14,90 €

Some people may think that the 5×5 board is just a reduced version of Go. Fukui Masaaki’s little creations show that much of what is complex and profound in Go can be found in the tight confines of the 5×5 board. The problems cover endgame moves, aspects of life and death, attacking and defending, judgments based on calculating territory, the presence or absence of ko threats, and even things pertaining to the realm of middle game fighting.

The most difficult problem ever15,00 €

The most difficult of all Go problems, created by Inoue Dosetsu Inseki (1646 - 1719), has still not been solved by professional Go players. Has the long-standing collaboration of three amateurs from Germany, and the United Kingdom, now found the answer?"
