This time in my Real Board Go Lectures I take a look at Huang Longshi, a Chinese master go player. Unfortunately he was someone who was apparently not appreciated in his own time. It wasn't until later that people going back and viewing his games realized that he was indeed one of the [...]
I've mentioned before in my Real Board Go Lectures that there are a lot of new young players that deserve your attention. What you might not expect is that a Japanese player is my next recommendation due to his amazing use of influence! That's right. Japanese influence.
