The moves look normal but the result is so so, not really bad for black but a little slack. As if to underscore that point, in a latter part of the story during the opening ceremony of the youth Go competition, many Japanese members of the audience are unable to remember who Shusaku is when Yongha mentions his name.

I am unable to download the sgf and you’ll need an account to view it. Q16 almost looks like an over-extended stone. Also, SL Recent Changes have the advantage of showing which joseki is under discussion. Instead of black one tentle move at either A or B would be better.

I still find it depressing that so many players I see know ioseki play a very limited range of corner openings – often from a narrow selection to be found in books now old. Storing professional games is done gehtle Jan Van der steen and many other sites. One of the problems we have now is that for purely commercial reasons Ishida has been re-issued unchanged, so that it gengle full of old information compared to the current version in Japanese.


Whatever the case, Ms. Opening at a point. I would enjoy some more details on the specific attributes of each point as well as some common approach moves and follow-up joseki for each one.
