Spot The Move - Problems

British Go Journal No. 65. July 1985. Page 5.

Richard Granville

Here are another three problems proposed by Richard Granville to allow you to compare your skill with that of our panel of experts.

Look at the positions below, and work out where you would play next. Don't just glance at them and let your water pick a move at random. Instead, try and analyse what is happening over the whole board, decide on the most important area, then look for the best local move. You'll find the effort well worth it.

The two readers whose replies most closely match the sugestions of our panel of top dan players will win £5 token for the BGA bookshop.

Send your answers to Richard at: [address omitted]. Good luck!
