The 1971 Honinbo Tournament
This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Dec 11, Manny rated it it was amazing Shelves: This is the best English-language book I know on Go, and one of the best games books I have read in any category. If you want to understand what World Championship level Go is about, this is the one to get.
It’s not a beginner’s book, so make sure you know the basics and have played a bit For example, Samurai were traditionally all supposed to excel in Go.
The This is the best English-language book I know on Go, and one of the best games books I have tournamment in any category. The amount these players can see is tournamnet – chessplayers will feel suitably humbled.
It’s not at all uncommon for a top Go player to spend an hour over one single move. When a chessplayer does this, his brain has in all probability seized up, and he is going to produce a blunder. We’ve all had it happen to us.
A Go player is more likely to have been spending his time thinking deeply, and will produce an exquisite move that delicately balances half a dozen different considerations. Iwamoto picks out important moments in the tourjament, and sometimes spends several pages explaining how someone made the decision he did.
What’s truly scary is that you can see he’s only scratching the surface, giving you a brief summary of the thought processes involved. Needless to say, most people won’t find this book the least bit interesting. But if you’re fascinated by games and want to see something really different, then buy it now, together with a couple of introductory texts.
The Atomic Bomb Game was a game played August as the second game of the third title series for the Honinbo title, which was held at that time by Hashimoto Utaro. The challenger was Iwamoto Kaoru.
Go had continued all through the war years in Japan, in reduced form. The story of the game has been told often. The second game was played on the outskirts of the city because propaganda leaflets had been dropped, concerning a new powerful bomb it seems the move was at police insistence. The location was 5 kilometres from the eventual centre of the explosion. The blast from the atomic bomb “Little Boy” above Hiroshima interrupted the game in its third day.
It came at 8. There were injuries to some of those there caused by flying glass, and damage to the building. Segoe was blown off his feet. The game wasn’t resumed until after lunch.
The game was then played to a conclusion, Hashimoto winning by five points with White there was no komi. This tied the match Under the glass is the position of the board at the time the bomb was dropped. The moves from the first two days had just been replayed on the board at the time.
The board here belongs to T. Just visible on the other side is Mark’s diploma signed by Iwamoto Kaoru, a survivor of the Atom Bomb game. View all 12 comments.
Jan 14, Frank rated it liked it. Things which are obvious to Iwamoto are not necessarily obvious to mere mortals. But he presents his analysis of each game in the Rin-Ishida match thoroughly and does not skimp on explaining various alternate paths the games might have taken.
This book was published before many Japanese go terms had common English equivalents, so be prepared for lots of Japanese. A small matter, since the diagrams make it pretty clear what he’s talking about. I found the custom of ending each day’s tournament play Things which are obvious to Iwamoto are not necessarily obvious to mere mortals.
I found the custom of ending each day’s tournament play with a sealed move kind of cool. While ninety-eight percent of this book is focused solidly on the games’ strategies and tactics, I was amused by occasional observations such as “Ishida came to [the fifth match] sporting a modest growth of beard.
Bought this primarily because of Manny’s review.
