Estimated Problem Book Difficulty

This page focuses on problem books, although problem books containing a little theory are included, with two purposes.

  1. Provide an estimated difficulty for those interested in the given books.
  2. Give a structured and progressive guide for those who incorporate problems into their training.

Note that levels are recommendations for when to start, not when they stop being effective. Estimates are KGS based and are approximate guesses from various sources.

It’s recommended to solve problem books multiple times, including upside down and sideways.

  • Eizero1: While this page is good for listing tsumego sets, some of the estimated difficulties are really far off.
