Last weeks in Japan, part 1: final insei games with commentaries

Expect a slightly longer series of blog posts describing my final days here in Japan. As you may remember, my flight back to Finland is on May 11, and as such I will be at least participating in some Finnish tournaments this summer, as well as in the European Go Congress. Kidō Cup I will skip, as I feel it’d be too soon after my return — while I like traveling, too much is too much.

Last weekend I scored a perfect 6-0 result, which placed me cleanly on the first place of C class with 19 wins and 5 losses. I didn’t happen to take a photo of the final results sheet, but I believe the second place was reached with 15 wins and 9 losses. In this first post of the series, I’ll present two of my games from last weekend, one against 藤原 (Fujiwara, who got promoted to B class) and one against 今野 (Konno, who also got promoted to B). Most of the comments are courtesy of the English class attending professionals, but a part of them are my own.

    1. It actually does, if you look a bit harder! I agree I should add more, but a game commentary blog post is not the right place.

    1. Hi!

      I’ve occasionally thought about it alright, and that’s still a longer-term goal of mine, even if one difficult to achieve.
