Strategic concepts of Go. Aji, kikashi and sabaki are the most important concepts of the game. They imbue the game with strategic subtleties unmatched in any other game. Without an understanding of these concepts, no go player can hope to attain a high level of skill. Besides these concepts, it is also necessary to understand the shape and distribution of stones and how they influence other parts of the board, determining which stones must be strengthened before playing large-scale strategic moves. This book gives the reader a true sense of go’s strategic beauty.
