“This game features a move influenced by my study of the AlphaGo games, as well as a losing move in which I pull out stones that I had 2017.09.13_Redmond Review Intro Ep7previously decided to sacrifice,” says Michael Redmond 9P in his game commentary below, which accompanies the game’s video commentary, hosted by Chris Garlock of the AGA E-Journal. “What was I thinking?” asks Redmond.

The game was played on August 31, and it was the final of the Meijin A section. Redmond’s opponent was Kyo Kagen, Chinese name Hsu Chia Yuan. “Kyo was a 4P at the time, but the following week he was promoted to 7P for entering the S league of the Kisei tournament. S is the final 6-player round-robin that decides the challenger for the title.”
