R.W. Whitaker, 1979: 渋み, p.57 (105-106):

"Do we speak of Gô only, Teacher?" "We speak in terms of Gô." 大竹さん slipped his hands into his 着物 and pressed the palm against his stomach while he took another mint drop. "For all your brilliance, dear student, you have vulnerabilities. There is your lack of experience, for instance. You waste concentration thinking your way through problems that a more experienced player reacts to by habit and memory. But this is not a significant weakness. You can gain experience, if you are careful to avoid empty redundancy. Do not fall into the error of the artisan who boasts of 20 years experience in his craft while in fact he has had only 1 year of experience — 20 times. And never resent the advantage of experience your elders have. Recall that they have paid for this experience in the coin of life and have emptied a purse that cannot be refilled." 大竹さん smiled faintly. "Recall also that the old must make much of their experience. It is all they have left." For a time, 大竹さん's eyes were dull with inner focus as he gazed upon the drab garden, its features disintegrating in the mist. With an effort he pulled his mind from eternal things to continue his last lesson. "No, it is not your lack of experience that is your greatest flaw. It is your disdain. Your defeats will not come from those more brilliant than you. They will come from the patient, the plodding, the mediocre." Nicholai frowned. This was consonant with what 岸川さん had told him as they walked along the cherry trees of the 梶川. "Your scorn for mediocrity blinds you to its vast primitive power. You stand in the glare of your own brilliance, unable to see into the dim corners of the room, to dilate your eyes and see the potential dangers of the mass, the wad of humanity. Even as I tell you this, dear student, you cannot quite believe that lesser men, in whatever numbers, can really defeat you. But we are in the age of the mediocre man. He is dull, colorless, boring — but inevitably victorious. The amœba outlives the tiger because it divides and continues in its immortal monotony. The masses are the final tyrants. See how, in the arts, 歌舞伎 wanes and withers while popular novels of violence and mindless action swamp the mind of the mass reader. And even in that timid genre, no author dares to produce a genuinely superior man as his hero, for in his rage of shame the mass man will send his 用心棒, the critic, to defend him. The roar of the plodders is inarticulate, but deafening. They have no brain, but they have a thousand arms to grasp and clutch at you, drag you down." "Do we still speak of Gô, Teacher?" "Yes. And of its shadow: life."

is considerably more difficult to solve than chess. In 2014, Crazy Stone, a 6d Gô sw, defeated 9p N. Yoda in a 19x19S by 2.5 pts with 4 hs. Tactics on T-boards become more elegant without joseki.
