This game starts as a classic White’s territory v. Black’s moyo. When Black’s moyo turns into solid territory, the game switches to White’s moyo v. Black’s territory. Then the game hinges on Black being able to successfully live inside White’s moyo. Michael and Eric are long-time members of the go community and both have very versatile and unique playing styles. This game should definitely be interesting!
