Miyamoto Naoki

    Keywords: People

(宮本直毅) Kansai Ki-in professional, 9 dan in 1969. Born on 1934-12-09, dead on 2012-10-26. Miyamoto is most known to the western world for the books he has written. He is also the major commentator of the games of Shusaku as compiled by John Power in Invincible. He and Go Seigen are the first professional Go players known to play 9x9 Go and have game records.[1]

Books by Miyamoto

[ext] Miyamoto's profile at Gobase

Oyama Kunio, Ushinohama Satsuo and Matsumura Osamu are his pupils.

[1] One of his game records is reviewed with full annotation at [ext] 9 x 9 Go Review repository.

[2] He really seems to have written the original magazine articles it's composed of.

[3] Is this book by Miyamoto ? The [ext] description at Dave Carlton?'s [ext] site does not list Miyamoto as the author.

[4] The pro-pro handicap games organized by Miyamoto Naoki were published, with his commentary, in Go Review from May 1968 through August 1969 (and no doubt in some original Japanese publication). The pro-pro games published by Yutopian are a different set of games; and there is yet another set organized and commented, as I recall, by Ishida Yoshio, published as an Igo Club pamphlet. --FredK
