White: Eddy Shaw, 3d, UK
The game-file in SGF format.
Eddy Shaw had a good congress at Terschelling. He was entered at 3 dan despite not quite having been promoted by the BGA. However he amply justified his elevated status, winning his forst four games. This one comes from round four, and his opponent was Frank Janssen, one of the growing horde of Dutch 4 dans who was not, however, having a very good tournament.
Comments are by Matthew Macfadyebn, based on those by Mr Nakayama in a lecture after the game.

If Black plays the nose tesuji at 1, White cannot win the resulting semeai.

However, up to 122 white succeeds in getting some stones on the outside and developing an attack on Black's centre group. Black decides to give up two stones with 123 and 127.
White's attack was not as severe as it might have been. For example 148' could have cut at 154; and 152' should be omitted (after 158 it could be at 153), and so the game got into a tight yose.
Unfortunately the remaining alarums and excursions are lost to posterity, but it is known that White eventually squeezed home by half a point.
