In the Final 32, winners play winners and losers play losers within each group. In the first round, Lee Sedol 9p of Korea lost to Chen Yaoye 9p of China and Eric Lui 6d of the US lost to Hideki Komatsu 9p of Japan, so Eric met Sedol in the second round.

Whoever loses this game will be knocked out. Everyone knows that Eric is the underdog, but this is a good opportunity for him to learn from the top player in the top tournament.
