Hi everyone,

I'm the happy owner of this wonderful book series.

i can offer a rough estimate of the tsumego series:

vol 1 - ddk
vol 2 - 10k-5k
vol 3 - 5k-2k
vol 4 - 2k - 1d
vol 5 - 1d+
vol 6 - 2d+

Personally I've been through vol 1 to 4, and then again vol 1 to 3.
First pass:
vol 1 98% correct
vol 2 92% correct
vol 3 78% correct
vol 4 69% correct
vol 5 ? tried the first 40 problems but too many I did not know the shape.

Second pass:
vol 1 99% correct
vol 2 97% correct
vol 3 91% correct.

It's a very good series of common situations and the volumes work their way up, building upon previous shapes, that get repeated in different forms.

It was a great feeling to discover a long sequence that i 'saw' in one of my games a way to kill, which my opponent missed. It was the same sequence that I had done in this tsumego series.

I'm around 1kyu and am confident i will finish this series one day. Hopefully finish vol 6 with at least 66% correct.

I also have the tesuji series. Vol 1 and 4 seem rather easy, ddk-sdk. Vol 2 and 3 sdk level. Vol 5 and 6 around 2k - dan+ level

Hello nasdaq,

Thank you for your answer, I'm surprised the two series are so different in terms of level gap from vol 1 to 6 though!

At what level did you pruchase them?

Hi,

I got them at 1kyu level. I think they are suitable for all levels, from ddk to mid/high dan. a ddk will find all but vols 1 tough going though.

I think the tesuji books are more about learning all the different kinds of tesuji and endgame plays rather than ramping up through the difficulty levels.

Although the last 2 tesuji volumes seem harder.

I was wondering where you both were able to purchase your books. I thought about purchasing this series for myself but don't know where to look for purchasing.

I got them through a friend in China.
There's a shop selling them in Holland but they were too expensive compared to the chinese price(10 times).

If you know a chinese speaker you can order them easily but be careful with sellers.
