Things strong players struggle with

Is there anything strong players struggle with , I heard in chess even good players don’t know how to mate with bishop and knight. Does go have anything similar.

Life and death, Joseki , or yose ?


In the specific aspects of go i think It’s hard for good players to see what Chinese call mengshou, blind spot. These are moves in unusual position or shape, and which work like a tesuji. It’s hard to see because It’s not in their daily catalog.

Wouldn’t be surprised if strong players struggle with the same things as weaker players only on a higher level.
Not sure about this because I am not a strong player :grinning:


That’s pretty much it.

A strong player has strong fundamentals. That’s the major difference between weak and strong players.
