In this Redmond Cup game between top US amateurs, Andy gives quite a bit of high level analysis.  Even stronger readers will have some details to work out for themselves.

Andy Liu 1P first came to the attention of the US go community when he was just 11 years old, winning the Junior Division of the Redmond Cup in 2002.  Ranked 7 dan by the age of 15, he surprised everyone by sweeping the US Open in 2006, beating a professional and several 8- and 9-dans in the process.  In 2012 Liu stormed the first AGA/Tygem professional certification tourney, his undefeated record earning him promotion to Professional One Dan, along with Gansheng Shi 1P.  Liu is currently in his fourth year at New York University, studying Business and English.  The E-Journal is delighted to have both of the first U.S. pros commenting for us, and we know our readers will enjoy their insights.
