“Do you think this exchange is good for you?”

Wednesday, April 25th, 2007

I wrote a new article/lesson titled “Do you think this exchange is good for you?”

It is based on the commentary that Cho Seokbin (ex-insei in Korea, now living in Germany; he is currently on a Go tour in the US) made for the decisive game in the Cherry Blossom Seattle Go Tournament

The title – “Do you think this exchange is good for you?” – seems to be one of Seokbin’s favorite questions during game commentaries.

This is a great question to ask before every move we want to play: just consider what is the opponent’s most logical response to our intended move, and ask ourselves: “Is this exchange good for me?”. This may bring a new perspective on the way we play.
