Don’t say, I will become 5-kyu on KGS at the end of the month. I will solve each book and keep track of how many problems I solved wrong. A very good book to practice one’s skill!

Tesujis This aims at the question, what’s the difference between these two and is one of them more important than the other? Chikin of the structure you will have some easy and some hard problems, so it’s not always troublesome to come up with a solution.

K46 Graded Go problems for beginners 1, Kano

Generally you don’t know how serious your chikn take the game, so 5-kyu is just any number. IMO, you are supposed to struggle with these problems, and that’s OK. Also offering problems with different difficulties, this book invites you to resolve it several times and always learn something knew.

Compared to Tsumegos or Tesujis you now have to take the whole board into consideration to find the big and urgent points. You might be able to muddle through to about 10k with only an encyclopedic knowledge of life and death, but without at least some competence problmes the opening and being able to discern where the “big points” are, you won’t get much beyond that.


Diligent study of this series will lay the foundation for becoming a strong player. And that means looking at empty points. A lot of problems need be solved chikin spotting a liberty shortage in the opponent’s shape.

For the errata page, click here. This leads to my first point, why memorizing Josekis does not make you any stronger. You are gaining insight into why things do or don’t work. This is the foolproof way to read. The benefits of replaying professional games are not easily described. Generally speaking I would not advice to focus mainly on memorising professional games.

In my opinion, the best way to learn Joseki s is to look them up, when they appear in your game. Assuming you know what this entails and can differentiate a real eye from a false one, the problem becomes simpler. So with mastering a lot of Tesujis you will drastically decrease your time needed to spot weaknesses within the shape of your opponent’s stones.

So Diagram 1 looks better than Diagram 2. Go is all about reading and being able to visualize sequences, so it’s best to start early practising this skill. It teaches you everything about how to attack and what attacking moves actually are; and it shows the opposite side: White played but Joseki is around ‘a’, what’s your move?

This is the one and only middlegame book you’ll need for a long time. I recommend this free website to do so: A lot of the problems deal with sacrificing stones but there are also the usual neat connecting techniques and towards the end you have quite some endgame Tesujis. Still they are very important to spot as fast as possible. I’d say it’s around Dan-level. So the aim is to make two eyes.


If you might not be convinced yet: The next logical step is for White to take dho eye away from the inside at a instead ofbut after Probblems descends at bthe hane of White and the block of Black leaves Black alive again.

I found out that after I replayed professional games for quite some time, certain moves I saw in amateur games just stroke me as odd. Capturing enemy stones and rescuing one’s own stones.

The book really is a jewel! This book alone made me at least one rank stronger. This is of course bad and one way to efficiently work against this is to solve opening problems.

If you have the chance, play against stronger players, because you can learn the most from them. Readers are invited to send us corrections that they may find to our email address below.

But if you are struggling, that’s not a bad thing.

If you start playing, you will not dhikun any Joseki s, that’s okay because your opponents won’t know any either. Although I said that the holy grail of my beginning Go career was In the Beginningthis book is in my opinion much better and covers all the same.

A little more difficult than the beginner exercises problems.
