Mace Lee of found this game where two top-level amateurs play out a ladder which doesn’t work. Another cool thing about it is that there’s the potential for the ladder to extend into a backward ladder, as well.

And on the pro news front, Yamada Kimio won the 3-player play-off to become the next challenger for the Honinbo title.

    Those ladder variations are totally awesome. Pity pros are probably just too strong to play like that – they read it all out and decide against, and the spectators never know it was there. Oh, in case anyone is interested, the joseki leading to the position in the bottom left is a popular one starting 3-4, high approach, 2-space high pincer, long knight’s move.

    Even cooler is
    this game
    played by Lee Sedol in 2003 (would you believe he was only 6p then?).

    Lol – that game is referenced in this article, but Mace Lee thought the game in this article was more exciting than the Lee Sedol game 😉
