Published April 2014, this is the long awaited follow up to Long Yuan – Gu Li vs. Yi Sedol 28 Dogfights with Detailed Explanation. The title of the book, Chi Xiao, refers to another famous ancient sword from Chinese history. Gu Li once again works with Zhang Da Yong (Editor in Chief of Weiqi Tiandi) to explains 28 of his international tournament games with detailed commentaries and 8 other games with short commentaries. The games in this book basically cover the period from 2006 to 2013. Originally Gu Li wanted to release this book right after he won another big international tournament title, but sadly such did not occur and by the end of 2013, Gu Li decided that it was time to publish the book while he makes a new fresh start in 2014. Along with detailed commentaries are many color photos of Gu Li’s life during this period including a picture from his wedding in 2013.

One thing I notice is that some of the games that are played against Lee Sedol here have the exact same commentary as provided in the previous book so I feel somewhat cheated to have paid money for some of the same information. But I guess he needed to do so for readers who only buy one of the two books.

There seems to be a boxed set of of both books but I haven’t seen it available anywhere yet and I probably won’t buy it since I have both books already.

Not sure if he plans to write a book after his ten game match against Lee Sedol, so we can only hope for such a follow up.

  1. Ah this looks awesome! If only I was able to get a copy of it myself. Have you worked through all of it yet?

      Try searching on Taobao if you want your own copy. You’ll probably need an international forwarding agent to help you ship it though. Check my page on Collecting Chinese Go Books.
      I haven’t worked though the games in the book yet. Just put a lot of work typing up the games listed in the book to flesh out this post 🙂
