In this game, one of Guo Juan’s 2 dan students takes Black against another 2 dan. Black soon reaches an advantage against White’s offbeat opening, but instead of simplifying the game, lets White create complications. But with her analysis of the ensuing fighting, Guo Juan 5p shows that both sides had multiple chances to change the game’s outcome.
