Inside its covers, I found the story of a girl who devoted her badkk to baduk, and felt that she was capable of doing more. This comes from practice.

Go/baduk Books

Thanks tchan, I had a bit of a look around your blog previously, I think I just missed those speed baduk books. I don’t really have any booos that any particular book will improve my strength in go, but I do believe that solving problems is a big part.

Her unique perspective as a professional baduk player taught me a great deal about what it means to be a person. In stock on January 11, If I am right about that, it’s probable that you will also enjoy the Essential Life and Death series also from Baduktopia. Hence looking for chinese language books; plenty of them at all difficulties, and cheap boois boot. Page 1 of 2.

I had a quick look at the second life and death book- seems that it’s around the level of the second Lee Changho life and death book- one of the problems was a direct copy of a problem bookx that book. I highly recommend it.

Thank you for the detailed review! The pocket books are OK- maybe a little bit hard for me now, but it will be nice to be able to carry around. Some books suffered some slight damage to corners etc. Much like diving into an enemy’s complicated framework, she made a bold move to expand her capabilities far outside of the realm of playing baduk. It is divided bauk to sections though, and some problems with solutions with explanations are given at the beginning of each section, so maybe that gives some clues that I’m not picking up.


I like easy but not trivial problems, so it’s great for me. I was hoping to be able to bwduk it by sea, which would have cost me around yuan, but for some reason it wasn’t available as an option too big, maybe? I figure there must be a reason it’s often recommended, what would you say makes it so good? I’ve only really looked at the first book, labelled “Primary”. Learn more about Amazon Prime.

I was taking my inspiration from that “It’s not hard to make 8D” post, which advocates buying lots of problem books, and solving them continously. I’ve heard people order direct from Taobao without issue though, for me it was marginally easier to just deal with one company to pack and ship everything. Available for download now.

The Game of Go / Baduk / Weiqi

Go for Beginners This is the classical introductory Go book. I purchased all 5 volumes in the series. Some problems may even be mid-dan, but I’m not certain.

I’m getting a feeling that if I’m going to keep improving at the game, that I need that grade school education. It takes a lot of time to do, labour of love The problems are difficult and I would not recommend this book to anyone lower than 3 dan.

But it’s not ideal. Vooks are filed under author name and subject terms. Last edited by zac on Thu Apr 26, 7: Only 4 left in stock more on the way. Although there are some really good english language problem books, there just doesn’t seem to be a lot at any one level of difficulty. Nonetheless, there are a number of websites and articles aimed at informing western readers of the books available to them. A problem to note is that sometimes the problem and the solution appear on pages facing eachother.


I also thought about making my own pdfs, but couldn’t find an easy solution to do it. Index to L19 Book Reviews. vooks

Unfortunately I won’t know the shipping costs until they arrive at the superbuy warehouse, but have a rough estimate. Yes, they are being sent to Australia Hobart, Tasmania.

I don’t think you will be disappointed. Excellent series of books with Go problems.

I think I mentioned that Bloks have the Jump Level Up series arriving next week, I’ve heard that the two series level up, speed baduk are quite comparable.

Guo Juan said something about western players lacking strong fundamentals, which means that many bokos it to around the 1 dan level, but they find it much harder to go beyond. They have been very quick to respond to enquiries, and update my account once things arrive, photo’s are taken, package is sent etc. In badik vast majority of cases, amateurs tend to over-attack, and underestimate the need for defense.

The book with connection problems in it is nice, as I haven’t seem much of that type of problem in English problem books. What is it’s difficulty like? I’m a 15k on NNGS nngs. Introductory Problems, 30 Kyu to 25 Kyu.
