A while back when I was taking my first steps, someone in these forums commented to me that most amateur games are won and lost because of shape, and fighting. As I've learned more, I've come to understand that he was right.

Does anyone know of good tutorials or helpers on fighting in go? Videos, sites, books, etc. In the stickied posts above, there is a link to:

http://lifein19x19.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=91310#p91310

which is not bad, but is there more that really homes in on the topic? Fighting seems to me not quite the same as tesuji, but I suppose there is some overlap between the two.

Thanks for any help!

Yes, it is called (as far as I can tell, to the best of my knowledge) losing your temper. Should help :-)
