Gansheng Shi 1P gives this game introduction, “This is an interesting game from the IMSA Masters Championships this year. The game is from the pair go tournament where China played Korea. Both Choi Jeong and Yu Zhiying are top female players and Shin Jinseok and Mi Yuting are both currently top male players as well.”

The dynamic and flexible fighting sequences are a testament to the talent and creativity of pro players. Yet up to move 90, the game is still even. But then each side makes a mistake consecutively. As the saying goes, “The winner of the game is the player who makes the next-to-last mistake.”
