Chinese Pros play on KGS

Two Chinese pros, Hu Shuai 3p and Jack Jin 2p (aka smartrobot) played on KGS yesterday, to promote the Experience Go in China program. They are both teachers on the program. The game was played with generous time limits, and drew huge interest on KGS.

It was a very interesting game, rich in tesuji, filled with decisive ko fights, and was notable in particular for extensive use of guzumi (good empty triangles).

In the game, black holds a narrow but hard to overturn lead for most of the game, and then, at move 214, white plays a stunning move that turns the game on its head. Suddenly black is in real danger of losing heavily, and has to play some amazing go to stay in the game.

After the game, the players reviewed the opening and some of the middle game, and their comments were very interesting.

Here’s the game: jackjin vs hushuai
