I love the smell of tsumego in the morning.
I just received in mail the newest, recently-published tsumego book from Ōhashi Hirofumi 6p, our Nihon Ki-In English class member as well as a regular visitor to European go tournaments. The problem collection includes some of Ōhashi’s most interesting creations from the past 20 years, with the difficulty level of the problems being considerably high. Just look at the following difficulty scale:
While most of the problems in the book don’t involve shapes that occur in actual games, content-wise I would still find it fair to describe the book as a ‘modern Igo Hatsuyō-Ron’.
Here are a few photos of the book:
Ōhashi has shown some interest in having the book translated into English (possibly by me) and distributing it as an ebook. If you would like for this to happen, please leave a message as a comment in this post!
