Learn elementary stuff like two eyes live, corner-side-centre and ladders? Done.
Lose your first 50-100 games as quickly as possible? Done.
My rank has stabilised at around 19 kyu.
Ready to do some serious studying to make the transition from TPK to DDK? Yes!
But I need some advice on selecting suitable resources and using them for maximum benefit.
Note that I have been relying on the Smart Go Books iPad app (see gobooks.com).
The Second Book of Go (Richard Bozulich) seems highly recommended.
Skimming How Not to Play Go (Yuan Zhou) gave me a great impression.
What level do the later books in the Learn to Play Go Series (Janice Kim) reach?
How useful are amateur game commentaries like Double Digit Kyu Games (Neil Moffatt)?
I am prone to making small moves because when I make big moves, I get weak groups.
Which I have to make very heavy to save and thus secure little territory.
Looks like I need to learn about making good shape. There is the free PDF Shape Up!
First chapter is understandable but introduction implies it is for SDKs?
Big moves are most important in the opening, which is a key area for improvement.
I assumed that sanrensei was good for beginners. Playing on star points, few joseki to learn.
Wrong? Which fuseki are advisable at this level? Which common joseki are worth learning?
Any resource that explains them and how they apply good opening principles, at a DDK level?
For tsumego, I have finished first two Black to Play! Train the Basics (Gunnar Dickfeld) books.
Also completed Graded Go Problems for Beginners: Volume One (Kano Yoshinori).
Of course, I will continue with the next books in the series, but how good is
Workbook: Three-Move Life and Death Problems (Thomas Redecker)?
Turns out Elementary Go Series is not elementary at all. More for transition from DDK to SDK.
At what level does Lessons in the Fundamentals of Go (Toshiro Kageyama) become useful?
My Internet connection can be unreliable, so would rather not learn by watching long videos.
Any transcripts (or e-book versions) for Dywrin’s Back To Basics?
