This 2nd round game of the Kiriyama Cup B section was on the same day as my 1st round game against Ito Masashi, Feb 29, 2016. Ko Iso 8P is one of the stronger Japanese players, and has been a few times in the Honinbo and Meijin leagues. I started well in this game, but a couple of middle-game mistakes cost me the game.
