Wow! Where did the last two years go?
100 weeks of Go problems.
Thank you all for dropping by each week and sharing your thoughts in the comments from time to time.
Have you tried all 300 problems? Let me know!
Black plays first in all problems and all solutions are labeled ‘correct’. Have fun!
Easy Go problem
Sometimes the simplest moves are the hardest to see.
Intermediate Go problem
There’s a lot going on here, but the heart of this problem is a capturing race.
Apologies to Yang Laoshi (Yilun Yang 7p), who inspired this problem.
Hard Go problem
What’s an eye anyway?
There are so many possible move orders which will solve this problem. It’s hard to cover them all, so I usually avoid posting Go problems like this.
However, this week is special, so please forgive me if the move order you choose isn’t included in the SGF and check the solutions. You should be able to figure out whether your moves are essentially the same idea.
Still want more Go problems?
