This wild game between Ke Jie and Shin Jinseo, who are respectively the top professional players of China and Korea, is the first of 3 in the finals of the Bailing Cup. If you like fighting games, you’ll especially enjoy Gansheng’s explanations of how the fights evolve.

Already 7-dan at the age of 14, Gansheng Shi won the right to represent Canada at the 2008 World Youth Go Championships, where he competed in Guiyang China. In 2012 Shi fought well in the first AGA/Tygem professional certification tourney, earning promotion to Professional One Dan, along with Andy Liu 1P. Shi is now at the University of Toronto studying Immunology. The E-Journal is delighted to have him doing commentary, and we know our readers will enjoy his insights.
