Chang Hao claims Kangwon-Land Cup for China

Well, Chang Hao rescued China from quite a hole, and Gu Li didn’t even have to play. 4 successive wins by Chang, the last one against Yi Ch’ang-ho, sealed a brilliant comeback victory for China. Not bad for Chang, considering his record against Yi before this was 5 wins to 20 losses. Chang got an early lead in this game, and despite some brilliant yose by Yi, Chang was able to hang on to a 3.5 point victory.

In the Kisei, Honda Kunihisa was demoted from the league last year, but he won a pool to qualify to play in the league again this year.

And in the Japanese prelims for the World Go Oza, Kobayashi Koichi and Kobayashi Satoru were both eliminated, while So Yokoku was ousted by Rin Kaiho.

Unfortunately for Michael Redmond fans, he could not make it through to the final stage of a second big-seven title this year yet. Although he qualified for the final stage of the Oza earlier this year, he was not so lucky in the final pool game for a berth in the 45th Judan – he was defeated by Kim Sujun (7p).
