Calvin Sun 1P clearly explains what’s going on in this fighting game from the 2015 Redmond Cup Seniors. Black takes and maintains an early lead, but White tenaciously fights back. Black tries to defend solidly, but finally makes a miscalculation. The game shows how hard winning a “won” game can be.

Calvin Sun 1P, an AGA certified professional, has been a mainstay of the youth go scene for over a decade. He first came to national attention when he was just 7 years old, and became a finalist in the 2005 Redmond Cup. He went on to win the Redmond Cup the following year, and was the reigning Junior Champion the year after as well. Already 6 dan by the age of ten, he dominated most of the events he played in, and represented the US at the World Youth Goe Championships an unprecedented seven times. Sun is a student of Mingjiu Jiang 7P, and lives in the Los Angeles area.
