In Memoriam: Ogawa Tomoko 6P

Tuesday November 19, 2019

Ogawa Tomoko 6 dan passed away on November 15 at age 68. A pupil of Kitani, she is perhaps best known in the West as the author of “The Endgame” part of the Ishi Press Elementary Go Series. I will always remember her as the ofttimes host of the NHK matches I watched on my VCR. She was the winner of the Women’s Honinbo in 1986 and the Women’s Kakusie in 1987.
