Flow of the Stones

    Keywords: Go term

Flow of the stones is a metaphor for natural, harmonious development of play, by both players, that is suitable for the position.


Example 1:

Go Seigen (W) - Kitani Minoru, Moves 10 to 15  

This example comes from the New Fuseki era, 1934. In Now I would play this way (Ima nara kou utsu), Go Seigen comments on this game.

W1 does not extend too far because of Black's center (black+circle). B4 welcomes an invasion, also because of his center, which will provide support for an attack in that case.

Moves 16 to 21  

On p. 105 Go Seigen says that there is a natural flow of the stones from W10 to B21.
