Chen Zude was the 1st modern 9 dan in China. He is best known for popularizing the Chinese Fuseki in professional play. He had an avid love of old Chinese weiqi game records and studied them intensively to seek wisdom from the past. But in ancient China, the opening was always restricted to the 4-4 points unlike modern Japanese rule go where the opening was much more open. Chen Zude thought of using the Chinese Fuseki to simplify the opening so that it would enter the middlegame earlier and turn into games which rely on reading and fighting ability where he excelled from his extensive study of ancient Chinese game records.

When the project was first announced, it was envisioned to be a 5 year project to complete a series of 20 volumes. At the end, it was refined to the present 14 volumes the last of which was completed while he was sick in the hospital before he passed away. It is very fortunate that he was able to complete the project and provide us with this great collection of detailed commentary on some of the best games of the Qing Dynasty (around the period when Qianlong was the Emperor of China) which is considered by Go Seigen to be the peak of Chinese weiqi strength.

Go Seigen was so happy to learn of this project that he wrote a long preface for the series. Go Seigen considers this period to be equivalent to the best of ancient Japanese go. It was an age when rich patrons still paid a princely sum to sponsor games between national champions. Go Seigen says that for the ten Danghu games, the players were paid 1000 taels 兩 of silver each. The equivalent of which is about JPY10,000,000 in 1950 terms.

Although the ancient moves may not be immediately applicable for modern play which emphasizes the opening and quick play, the insights from masterful games which were played at a leisurely pace are very insightful especially when explained by a top master who has a great love for ancient Chinese games.

This is a gift of love from Chen Zude for posterity.

    I just noticed that the ISBN for volume 3 in the 1st Series has a typo. The ISBN
    should be 978 75086 30229 (not 34326)
    Thanks
