Member’s Edition: Ryan Li 1P on 2016 US Masters

Tuesday November 1, 2016


In this exciting 2nd round game, Ryan Li 1P not only clearly explains the fighting issues, but also gives a rare look into intangible pro level strategic thinking.

Ryan gives this game introduction: “Hi all, this is Ryan Li (1p). Today I will be going over the second round of the 2016 US Go Congress. My opponent is Zhongfan Jian, a strong Amateur from Sichuan, China. This is his first appearance in the North American Go community, so I did not know what to expect. Jian showed his strength finishing with a 6-3 record, and he definitely gave me a hard time in this game.”
