COMMENTED GAMES BY LEE SEDOL PDF

Needless to say, I learned the hard way how incredibly inaccessible professional commentaries can be. Around the time this book came out, I had just started being exposed to the modern professional go scene. Like most people, I gravitated toward the most well known and strongest players i.

Needless to say, I learned the hard way how incredibly inaccessible professional commentaries can be. Around the time this book came out, I had just started being exposed to the modern professional go scene. Like most people, I gravitated toward the most well known and strongest players i. I was so used to other professional commentaries where game diagrams were often 10 moves or longer with such advanced discussions that this new approach was such a relief.

In addition, since each game diagram is usually only a few moves long, the game discussion is broken down in far more detail and provides weaker players like myself an actual chance at learning something!

In addition, at the end of each game, Lee Sedol highlights all of the important moments along with each game. This is something I had never encountered before and found it really helped me gain perspective on the game. In fact, the only way I think that the game reviews could get any better would be if Lee Sedol himself were sitting with me one on one while going over his games and answering my questions. In terms of my ability to understand the discussion about the variations however, I would have to say that there were times it was a bit difficult for me to follow.

However, this is actually a really good thing since you will notice that I did not mention my eyes glazing over or anything. This will definitely be one of my favorites of all time and I am looking forward to revisiting it many times in my journey as a go player. While this might seem irrelevant to some, I found that it added a really personal touch to the book since it felt as if I was looking through a scrapbook and getting to know Lee Sedol personally.

The introductory page for each game was immensely appreciated since it gave context as to the kind of game being played along with how high the stakes were. The way Lee Sedol highlights the important moments of each game is new and really helped to wrap up the game in a very thorough manner. What did I gain from reading this book? A much broader perspective on the game in regards to how to approach it.

The realization of just how important accurate reading is when it comes to go. A new awareness of how often things can change and that trade-offs can occur at any time in the game.

How is the book structured? The tournament pairing chart. A black and white picture from the actual game itself with the respective players included.

The tournament and round that the game was played in. The date that the game was played. Indication of who played which color and what rank they were at the time. For the commentary portion of each chapter, each figure had the following structure: A large kifu that made it easy to read and figure out where each move was.

Below each kifu was at least a few lines from Lee Sedol commenting on his mental state of mind or thoughts he was having at the time. This is not to be confused with go related commentary, since it is more of a psychological introspection than anything else. As you can expect from any game review, the discussion of variations and numerous diagrams appear with each sequence. At the end of each game, Lee Sedol goes through and summarizes the highlights of each game and discusses the importance of that moment.

Extremely enjoyable to read. Finally, spread throughout the chapters, players will also find anecdotes and random tidbits called Episodes in the Table of Contents about Lee Sedol that serve as an extremely enjoyable break. What aspect can be improved on? No complaints here! Is this book easy to read? The tone of the book was primarily conversational that really helped alleviate any difficulty weaker players might normally have when reading a book with professional level commentary.

Bottom Line The first book where a professional provides commentary that can be accessible by beginner and intermediate players though a bit more towards intermediate players.

It takes professional level commentary to a level never seen before. Worth every penny and more for the content and experience you get with it! Players who have run into issues understanding professional commentaries in the past and are looking for a book that tries to bridge that gap.

So rather than tantalize the Go players here with gushing praise for this sadly unavailable treasure, I present Celebrity Death Match Special: Commented Games of Lee Sedol Volume I versus Doctor No Moves My match against Doctor No was the first time I had met a top-level supervillain in a tournament game, and I let myself be overawed by his reputation. I made an elementary mistake on move 38 and was captured by his henchmen, leaving me in an unpleasant position. My first thought was to attack the henchman on the left with a karate chop to the wrist, seizing his gun and using it to deal with the two henchmen on the right before turning back to dispose of the opponents behind me. I am able to do this by making use of the skillful play at A where I swing across the room using the chandelier. The sequence in Diagram 5 is long but forced, and at the end leaves me underwater in the shark tank with only thirty seconds of air. I judged that this would be a difficult fight and decided to leave the sequence unplayed for the time being.
