Young Chinese Masters, vol. 1

Young Chinese Masters, vol. 1 Sample PDF
The professional go world is suddenly being overwhelmed by teenage and twenty something Chinese players who are winning both international and Chinese national titles---virtually all current world title holders are Chinese, and several of them were born in the 1990s. Most of these players are not yet well known in the west, which is what prompts Slate & Shell to bring out a collection of the games of some of these impressive young go masters. This book has four fully commented games involving eight of them, and we plan to publish more soon. They are in a way the product of the internet since one of the reasons for their early strength is being able to play hundreds of games in a much shorter time than used to be possible. Their style tends to be more territorial than you might expect, but, as Yuan Zhou makes clear, they find amazing moves.
