The Chinese Opening - The Sure Win Strategy

BGJ 175 Spring 2016

Reviewer: Roger Huyshe

by Masao Kato
Published 1989 by Kiseido, 145pp.

After the introduction, the book is divided into chapters according to how the opponent approaches the Chinese formation: first approaching hoshi; secondly going along with opponents plan by approaching the 3-4 stone; thirdly wedging to prevent the formation and finally waiting till the double wing has been created. There follow examples from the author’s games. Study of this book should provide a very complete understanding, although it has been suggested that some ideas are now out of date.
