Making Good Shape


Get your stones efficient: recognising good shape is important. Shapes are the building blocks of your groups. They determine whether your stones are working together efficiently or are sitting in each other’s way. There are two aspects of shape. One is to make good shape for your own stones; the other is to spoil the shape of your opponent’s stones. This book provides an extensive theoretical introduction to shape, beginning with the efficient placement of stones. It illustrates various techniques for making good shape and gives its readers practical experience by presenting 245 problems so that they can hone their skills to find the shape move in their games.
