PDF resources

Hi guys!
Does anyone know some good pdf collection for beginners or something similar?
I really want to obtain as much as literature as I can, and go through it slowly…
Any help would be appreciated!
Cheers

Awesome!!!

Well, it is in the list Kosh mentioned, but you can give this a shot if you’ld like:

It is free like the others in the list, but it keeps getting updated and it was written with a beginner’s mindset.

Happy studying :slight_smile:

Not really for beginners but I guess you can call it literature. Not overly accessible but only slightly dated considering it’s from about 1000 years before alphago…

I found these pdfs at Evolution of Go - #5 by Oni

The Game of Go: Speculations on its Origins and Symbolism in Ancient China, Peter Shotwell 1994–2008

is the understatement of the decade! :laughing: It’s so dense and impenetrable, I think I’d lean more about Go from reading Shakespeare :rofl:

Nice as a historic artefact though. Cool link. Thanks :smiley: :+1:
