It is still day 1 in the third Kisei game
– but a major fight was already consumed, and another one is about to begin.
Here are 2 quizzes from this first day of playing.
Black to play – choose from A to G. Pay attention at both areas of influence and potential territory, but also at groups and balance of power. Shall black play in the largest open area (A), or invade and put pressure on white in the lower left (B), or make a base for his own weak group (C), or attack from the center (D), or connect below (E), or take white’s base away while expanding (F), or strengthen his main area, the right side (G)?
Black to play – choose from A to F. Since the lower side is a hot area, all suggested moves are concentrated here. Shall black connect with A (to get strong before attacking), or attack from the outside (B or C), or take white’s base away (D or E), or play a large territorial move, threatening white from a distance (F)?
