Kaizens Heavy Plastering


Kaizen's Heavy Plastering (快禅の大塗り Kaizen no oonuri) is a famous, large-scale sacrifice position worked out in the 1780's by amateur player, Komatsu Kaizen. The result is that the player who is sacrificing gains monstrous influence. The position is briefly discussed in: A Compendium of Trick Plays (p. 144), Invincible - The Games of Shusaku (pp. 86-7) and Utilizing Outward Influence (pp. 25-6).
