Chapter 1 Under the Stones (Ishi-no-shita) Problems 1-32

This spectacular technique involves allowing your opponent to make a seemingly decisive capture in order to set up a recapture, thereby forming an eye, taking territory or forcing ko.

Chapter 2 Oversized Eyes (Nakade) Problems 33-65

In most cases this reduces the nakade to only an eye, but in certain positions you can convert the whole nakade into a single false eye. You are no double familiar with such unsettled shapes as the pyramid-four, bulky-five and flowery-six. However, if the defender’s position has certain defects, you can even sacrifice large shapes which are related to these basic patterns.

Chapter 3 Other Techniques Problems 66-91

Concerning various ways of using throw-ins to force your opponent into shortage of liberties or make false eyes.

The Art of Capturing Stones is a problem book. This book provides thorough training in three types of techniques, namely, under the stones (Ishi-no-shita), killing oversized eyes (Nakade), and other sacrificing techniques.
