Takemiya on Takemiya

Wednesday August 14, 2013

Takemiya Masaki 9p visited the Seattle Go Center Tuesday night to play simuls. “While we were waiting for the simuls to start,” reports Andrew Jackson, “Takemiya got distracted by the screensaver on the center’s computers, which replay famous old games at a pace of a few seconds a move.  I watched him watch a Shusaku game, then a Shuko game, and then the next game that popped up was one of his own, against Rin Kaiho. He gave only a small “huh” of recognition, and no other commentary, but watched it all the way to the end without the slightest awareness of anything else in the room.”
