Reading Life & Death Go problems

“Tell me, I’ll forget
Show me, I’ll remember
Involve me, I’ll understand”
– Chinese proverb

L&G problemSome weeks ago I borrowed a baduk (Go in Korean) book from my Go teacher. It’s part of a collection of books by Lee Chang Ho (이창호), written in Korean, so I can just understand the diagrams. Luckily this book speaks about life and death, so it’s not difficult to follow. It shows L&D in a way I’ve not seen in English books on this matter. Shows a shape, and starts doing subtle variations (a extra liberty here and there) and surprisingly the way to solve all those similar problems are quite different. Which helps you to think, to calculate the position, to avoid storing the shape in your memory and forgetting about the details.

So, in order to copy some of these interesting problems before I give back the book, I decided to add them to goproblems.comEnjoy them!
