This game was played in new Japanese tournament, so called “Old Stars Cup.” This event gathered together the best Japanese players of 70′s-90′s, including Rin Kaiho, Ishida Yoshio, Kobayashi Koichi and many other big names from the history of the Japanese Go.

We don’t have such events in Korea. There is the Maxim Coffee cup, open only to 9-dans, but young 9-dans are also allowed to take part.
