Three-Stone Games
 

Authored by Guo Bailing
Translated by Ruoshi Sun

An English translation of the classic Chinese go textbook, Sanzi Pu, written by go master Guo Bailing (c. 1587 - c. 1662).

This book contains hundreds of diagrams from Guo's research on three-stone handicap games and 5 game records. It was customary to place the three stones at star points along the diagonal of the board, i.e. two diagonal hoshis plus tengen. Many of the variations contain dozens of moves (occasionally more than 100), as a result of quarter-board or even half-board fights. Particular emphasis is placed on the coordination of the tengen stone.

Be prepared for a showcase of tesuji and semeai skills in these intense battles!
