Beating igowin at 2 or 3 stones

  Difficulty: Intermediate   Keywords: Life & Death

9x9 games are an excellent way to develop your Life and Death skills. Igowin is pretty good at Life and Death, very rarely will it neglect to kill a group by playing on its vital point.

At my level, 6 kyu, I find myself playing against Igowin most often with two or three handicap stones against me. After playing many games I started becoming curious about what it takes to beat Igowin at this level and especially what the first few moves of such a handicap game should be.
