Meaning Of Stones

  Difficulty: Beginner   Keywords: Strategy

An important question when one is about to defend stones, is:

What's the meaning of those stones ?

DieterVerhofstadt/Advice to beginners

  • They cut the opponent's groups, at least one and preferably both of which are not clearly alive --> defend these stones
  • They cover an area that is too large to be overtaken by the opponent --> almost always defend these stone
  • They are close to a strong group of your own --> almost never defend
  • They are close to a strong enemy group --> throw away with a big smile
