A Japanese Book Shop

It is called [ext] Kinokuniya. A large section in Japanese. Tens of thousands of books. It is very difficult to find a book if you cannot read. Figured out that they should be not far from the book with a golf club. Found two shelves of booklets. Different difficulty judging by diagrams. Bought three. 22nd Meijin (Cho vs. Kobayashi). A book on fuseki, unfortunately not very practical because there are no star point moves in it. And a book of problems.

It will be very difficult with two first books because there is a lot of text there. I will have to learn to guess what is good and what is bad.

The third one is fascinating and humiliating at the same time. I have a feeling that I've seen these some of these positions. In my games. Blew them, of course. The book has an author. I can compare characters. Cho Chikun he is. Problems are quite difficult for me. I don't see solutions at a glance. Intermediate to difficult.

Now a problem. I think that I am not violating his copyright too much posting one problem. I even think that he has no copyrights on these problems. But I believe that he can solve them.

This problem comes from Xuan Xuan Qi Jing/Gen Gen Go Kyo, first published in 1349.

Black to play.  

I regret to admit that I lost this one recently.
