Learn Pafu's Beginner's Game - Up Against Power: Games #5-6

Sep 27, 2016, 11:31 AM |

(This post is part of a series on The Beginner's Game, an opening system by Pafu. It is written by Christopher Huff.)

A series of posts will follow containing two featured games played by the inventor of the system, including Pafu's own commentary (in "quotation marks") and plenty of my own. In each game the color cited plays the Beginner's Game.

Game #5. White.

When you play the Beginner's Game, it's easy for you "to choose the open or closed nature of the contest," as this game demonstrates. "Here, [Pafu] with White quickly closes the center and finally earns a draw against his top strength computer rival."

Game #6. Black.
Even "impressive deployments" do not overwhelm the Beginner's Game, Pafu notes with this game: "It's tough!"
