Your Move/Readers Write: 1st US Go Congress, Not

AGA news - Fri, 20/02/2015 - 02:26

1st US Go Congress, Not: “The group photo said to be of the 1st Go Congress in 1985 is not (Go Filmmakers Looking for US Go Congress Photos, Videos 2/16),” writes Michael Bull. “That photo predates the Congress and was taken in San Francisco, CA at one of the last of the East Coast/West Coast championships. The long time manager of the SF Go Club Shinji Dote is seated in the front and he never attended a US Go Congress, (he was unable to attend the 1999 Congress in SF because of poor health). The photo was taken by a SF Go Club regular known only as St. Clair.”

Matthew Macfadyen in Galway…

Irish Go Association - Wed, 18/02/2015 - 18:08

We had the immense honor, here in Galway, to receive the visit of Matthew Macfadyen, 6 dan and 25 times UK champion.

The session was a busy one : we were having one of our not-so-usual-but-usual-anyway wine and go evening session at my home plus some students who were already practicing with me in their school who decided to join the evening club plus some new beginners and finally Matthew and his wife Kirsty who joined out of the blue. Altogether, 17 players took place around gobans in the middle of glasses, tables, chairs, arms and legs, and it was cosy, and it was messy and it was absolutely great time ! Matthew played something like 14 games, with simultaneous games, commented games, and Kirsty teached some new beginners about the game. Their kindness and generosity brought a fabulous atmosphere to the evening and the Galway go club wanted to thank them deeply for their venue ! We are all going to play again and again so that for their next trip to Galway, Matthew will meet three or four 6 dans to compete with !

Philippe Renaut
in the name of all Galway Go Club players

The Power Report: Iyama close to defending Kisei title; Ida to challenge for Judan title; Meijin League; Honinbo League; Promotions

AGA news - Wed, 18/02/2015 - 02:15

by John Power, EJ Japan Correspondent

Iyama close to defending Kisei title:  The third game of the 39th Kisei title match was held at the Bella Vista Sakaigahama Hotel in Onomichi City, Hiroshima Prefecture, on February 5 and 6. Yamashita Keigo 9P (right) held his own in the fighting and in fact finished the middle game with a slight edge over the titleholder, but he slipped up in the endgame. Playing black, Iyama Yuta Kisei secured a win by 1.5 points. This was his third successive win, so Yamashita will face his first kadoban in the fourth game. Fortunately for him, there is a two-week break, so he has time to recover mentally from his bad start. The game will be played on February 19 and 20.

Ida to challenge for Judan title: The play-off to decide the challenger for the 53rd Judan title was held at the Nihon Ki-in in Ichigaya, Tokyo, on February 5. Playing black, Ida Atsushi 8P (left) defeated Kobayashi Satoru 9P by resignation after 137 moves. The title match with Takao Shinji will start on March 5. This will be Ida’s second challenge for a top-seven title.

Meijin League: The February round, which is the third round, of the 40th Meijin League has already been completed. The two undefeated players, Takao Shinji Tengen and Ko Iso 8P, both lost their games, so there is now a four-way tie for first. Takao and Ko are joined by Cho U 9P and Murakawa Daisuke Oza. Third-round results are given below.
(February 5) Cho U (B) beat Takao Shinji by resig.; Kono Rin 9P (W) beat Kanazawa Makoto 7P by resig.
(February 9) Murakawa Daisuke (W) beat Hane Naoki 9P by resig.
(February 12) So Yokoku 9P (B) beat Ko Iso by resig.

Honinbo League: Yamashita Keigo 9P is keeping up the pressure on the leader of the 70th Honinbo League, Ida Atsushi 8P. Yamashita won his fifth-round game, so he goes to 4-1. Ida is undefeated and will meet Kono Rin 9P (right) in the fifth round on February 19. Cho U 9P also won his fifth-round game and, on 3-2, is next in line. Both Yamashita and Cho have already lost to Ida, so they have to rely on other players to pull him back.
(February 12) Cho U 9P (W) beat Takao Shinji Tengen by resig.; Yamashita Keigo (W) beat Mimura Tomoyasu 9P by 3.5 points.

Promotions
