———————————————-

American Go Honor Society (AGHS) is hosting their Pair Go Tournament in KGS (http://gokgs.com) and commencing on the 19th September, 25th September and 26th September of 2009.

Thus, Brunei is sending two teams:- Xinwen and Philip as one team and Hiuhiu and Slide as the second team.

The most remarkable thing in this tournament is that this is rather a very challenging Rengo tournament where all players are at dan and also Andy Liu (Bigbadwolf 7d) is joining; moreover, admin team (javaness and sweety) joining as well!

The game started rather late at local time (GMT+8) 01 00 on the 20th September, 2009. The first opponent’s team was against underwater (Sean He) and sp1key0 (Ji Sang Kim).

The game started quite complicated with the unfamiliar joseki at 7 the followed-up to white 8 then cut at 10. Then another unfamiliar joseki at the top right when black responded the high pincer of white with move 47.

The game became very complicated and tough for Xinwen and Flamehaze after the cutting at 73 and etc. Thus resigned in the end.

The second game was started at 03 00 against ronm (Ron Mackenzie) x munily (Mulin Yang). The game went quite well until white invaded 3-3 on the top right, and eventually happened to create a double Ko situation which was very disadvantageous for Xinwen and Flamehaze.

However, through this double Ko situation, Xinwen had acquired a new knowledge in playing rengo where you may skip opponent’s turn by sacrificing your own. This way, the partner may focus on his/her sente and becomes his/her own game.

In the end, Xinwen had to resign.

Doing ヨセ (Yose) exercise is also essential in daily go practice other than just 詰め碁 (Tsumego). Just recently, Xinwen stumbled across the 9×9 Yose problems in http://www.goproblems.com, finding it interesting, Xinwen had decided to share this.

Condition:
Both of the diagram do not have komi at all.
Black to move first, then alternate.
Best move for both players to end the game.
