Michael Redmond wins a long close fight in a preliminary round of the Honinbo tournament. The game includes instructive ko battles, and endgame techniques as both players fight for every last point.

Redmond: This is the first round of two in the Honinbo A section. After A, there is a final section of three or four rounds, and then a round robin league with eight participants to decide the challenger. My opponent in this game is Kamimura, who has a strong fighting style.
