This recent game is between Gu Li and Lee Changho. Both were former top players out of China and Korea, respectively. Shi adds another motivation for this commentary: “I think this would be a great game to review former top world players that are still active today.”

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.
