Keywords: Go term

Bob McGuigan: Amai is a Japanese word which, depending on context, could mean sweet, lenient, dull, soft, mild, easy-going. In go it is used to imply a lack of severity, strength, or solidity. For example, pros use amai in describing a play of a single 4-4 point stone intended as a territorial move in the corner.

kokiri: I've seen it (at a more modest level) used to describe things for moves in the early endgame that aren't as strong as they might be: 'ji ni amai'.
