The Analyzed Games of Go Seigen (by Jim Z Yu and Patrick Bridges)

All games of Go Seigen were commented by Go Seigen 9-dan himself, and the commentaries were translated from the book “Detailed Analysis of Wu Qing Yuan’s Famous Games” by Jim Z Yu in 1993.

Jim Z Yu also annotate the commentaries (talking as I between []) and made it publicly available. You can read his explanation about his work here.

Later on, in 1999, Patrick Bridges edited this content and published it as a book. You can read his preface here or download his book here.

This book provides 8 games from Go Seigen and stories about some of the players and the context.

The content provided by Jim Z Yu and Patrick Bridges was so rich that I thought I had to make it online in a nicely readable way.

The only addition I made was to find the games examples was from and insert variations/comments to it so the curious reader have access to the context. Thus, there might be some variation or label mistakes in those sgf files.

Please report any errors to me by commenting on the page or in kgs. Climu.

    • Indeed.
      Isn’t it what is written in here ?

      ” the commentaries were translated from the book “Detailed Analysis of Wu Qing Yuan’s Famous Games” by Jim Z Yu in 1993.”
