Teaching game and review with Kamimura Haruo, 9 dan

This is a game I played last weekend while at insei training. Whenever insei don’t come to play their games (they have to inform the instructors beforehand about not coming), they get forfeit losses. Their opponents, who then don’t get to play a league game, end up playing an instructor instead — that’s also what happened to me last weekend. It has now been three times that I missed out on playing 王, who used to be in B class two months ago, but dropped to C and started missing out on some of the game days. In a sense, not getting to play a league game is bad, but I think a free win and a teaching game with a 9 dan professional somewhat makes up for it!

Some of the commentary included in the sgf is my own, but a big portion is what Kamimura-sensei said while reviewing the game. The game has some unconventional opening game choices, which should be of interest to lower dan level readers.

    1. To be exact, I used to be insei. If you click on the tag “insei” in the post, you’ll get into a page that includes all my posts from when I was insei — you’ll also find the info on how I became one there.
