Additional Information

 Info Slate and Shell:

9 Dan Showdown is the third large format book on Go Seigen’s ten-game matches by John Fairbairn. Go’s opponent is Fujisawa Kuranosuke, the first 9 dan in history, and the player whom Go feared the most. These two actually played three ten-game matches, the first before either was a 9 dan (the only ten-game match Go lost), and one four-game match, all of which are covered in the book. As usual in this series, Fairbairn includes substantial biographical and background material as well as local color for the games along with very thorough analyses of each game. This series, which will include all of Go’s ten-game matches as well as many other of his games, provides readers the only opportunity (in English) for serious study of the technique and style of the most famous player of the twentieth century. 335 pages
