In this 1st round game of the 2015 Redmond Cup, Guo Juan 5P mainly covers strategic issues, e.g., direction of play. Although the rating difference between the players is almost 3 AGA rating points, Guo Juan says, “I think the Black player played very well against a much stronger [rating-wise] player.” Although Black loses this game, Black valiantly presses White for an extended number of moves before the outcome becomes obvious.
