Sometimes I try to trick a player into doing an inefficient or faulty move.
There are people who find that a bad attitude. I know that the word trick has a negative connotation, but the adjective trick is defined as "a cunning act or scheme intended to deceive or outwit someone.
Is intending to deceive or outwit your opponent not a legitimate tool in playing go?
In my book creating board situation in which you can play a tesuji are legitimate.
And a tesuji could be defined (at least that is what I think) as a trick play.
Just my opinion.
Maybe you agree or disagree. Curious to hear what your opinion is.
Okay, but first POLL TIME
Tricking your opponent is
- a wrong attitude in go.
- just one of tools in your go toolkit that you can use to outwit your opponent.
- an issue I have no opinion about.
