This week’s problem is from Maeda Nobuaki 9p’s three-part tsumego collection, titled simply 前田詰碁集 (Maeda Tsumego-Shū), or Maeda’s Tsumego Collection. The three volumes together contain 585 relatively basic life-and-death problems that make for good reading practice for players of all levels.
A shortened version of the second volume can be bought on SmartGo Books under the title ‘Life and Death’. The Japanese three-volume set can be bought for example at the Nihon Ki-in for 4,000 yen plus tax.
