Whole Board Thinking in Joseki

BGJ 173 Autumn 2015, Reviewer: Roger Huyshe

by Yilun Yang

This comes in two volumes, the first on 3-4 point low kakari and the second on 3-4 point high and far approaches. The cover beautifully illustrates the thinking behind the book. Problems come in a group of 2 or 3, each with the same corner position but with differing situations in the other corners. We are invited to choose the joseki continuation appropriate to each circumstance.

The concepts are accessible to most SDK, but getting the correct answer to a good number of problems requires significant joseki knowledge and probably dan-level strength.
