This hard fought game is from the 24th Samsung Cup. Shi gives this background for one of the players, “Tang Weixing’s results in the past year has not been so great, and Tang has fallen greatly in global rankings. However, Tang has a history of consistent performance in top tournaments, such as the Ing, Samsung, and LG. He hopes to regain his form in the Samsung this year.”

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.
