제4회 국무총리배 세계아마바둑선수권대회 (25th October, 2009)

*Downfall*

Xinwen - Wuqi XU (New Zealand)
Xinwen - Xuqi WU (New Zealand)
(White) Xinwen - (Black) Xuqi WU
(White) Xinwen - (Black) Xuqi WU

———————————————-

Xinwen somehow believed that whenever he got good scores for the first day, he would start facing downfall of losing streak the second day, reason? probably “jinx”.

Xinwen met Wuqi XU from New Zealand in the 4th round, this was also the second time Xinwen happened to play against New Zealand. Mr. Wu used mini chinese fuseki, and Xinwen had happened to play the joseki of Mini Chinese wrongly, resulting a extremely tough game for Xinwen to continue.

Thus, lost by resignation.

———————————————-
*Losing streak*

(White) Xinwen - (Black) Gyorgy CSIZMADIA
(White) Xinwen - (Black) Gyorgy CSIZMADIA

———————————————-

For the 5th round, Xinwen played against Hungary representative, Gyorgy CSIZMADIA. Xinwen started again with a bad start.

Supertjc had reviewed that the exchange of 1 -4 were bad, basically because of the thickness black happened to have. Later, Xinwen bad habit had ON when Black played atari move at triangle mark. Instead of just covering up at b, Xinwen went to capture the stone at a.

The game went on until Xinwen resigned when knowing that he didn’t have enough points.

———————————————-
*Depressing*

(Black) Xinwen - (White) Felipe Herman van RIEMSDIJK
(Black) Xinwen - (White) Andrius PETRAUSKAS

———————————————-

In the afternoon, for the 6th round, Xinwen finally gotten black and hoping to play a stable fuseki which he did quite achieved in this game. The opponent is Andrius PETRAUSKAS from Lithuania.

Joseki to reply the white’s 19 was wrong, should have played at 23 first, said Jia Cheng. and lastly the losing of fuseki was the Black’s move 30, should’ve hane at “a”.

Eventually lost.

———————————————-
*Maximum*

Xinwen - Felip Herman van RIEMSDIJK
Xinwen - Felip Herman van RIEMSDIJK
(White) Felip Herman van RIEMSDIJK - (Black) Xinwen
(White) Felip Herman van RIEMSDIJK - (Black) Xinwen

———————————————-

The last round, Xinwen played against Brazi, Felip Herman van RIEMSDIJKl. To Xinwen, he had to win this game no matter what it took. and which he did, making the game a big battle in middle and killed the group A connected to B.

Thus, 3 wins, same as past 2 years… pretty disappointing.

Instead of 王汝南 (wang ru nan), Xinwen happened to meet 张文东, who’s another famous professional player 9-dan back in 1980s, in Korea. Mr. Zhang then told Xinwen about the Go event that is going to be held in Asian Games 2010, and hoping to invite Brunei to join as well, sending bout 10 players.

———————————————-
*Silly habit*

(White) Ralph SPIEGL - (Black) Xinwen
(White) Ralph SPIEGL - (Black) Xinwen

———————————————-

Xinwen thought it would be a good game until White made the jump “3” then Xinwen having the bad habit of not bothering to read – thought to be nothing will happen – responded at “4” causing all group disconnected and lost by resignation.

———————————————-
*Lucky win*

(White) Sandro POLDRUGO - (Black) Xinwen
(White) Sandro POLDRUGO - (Black) Xinwen

———————————————-

the second round started bout 15-20 mins after the first round. Surprisingly Xinwen got to play with Italian player, which he had faced for the past 2 years (different players, 2nd KPMC and 3rd KPMC).

The fuseki went quite badly for Xinwen, very tough game until White tenuki-ed Black move at “3” then went for “4” instead, xinwen got the chance and hit “5” to decide the game, and eventually after long reading, Xinwen found the killing move-answer at “A”.

Thus, won by resignation.

———————————————-
*Encounter*

Xinwen - India

(White) Rahul JAYARAMAN - (Black) Xinwen

———————————————-

Funny encounter meeting Indian player for the first time. Xinwen had tried to play seriously with him and happened to overplay the move at “1” area but got to kill the group of White forcing the opponent to resign.

India as part of the Asian Go Federation’s members, Xinwen tried to get to know Rahul and to share some knowledge of the Go stories in India.

Malaysia Weiqi Association has decided to host this informal Competition, the “五番碁“. The title “五番碁” is originally derived from the traditional contest from Edo Period of Japan, 十番碁 (Jubango)¹´². Due to the time constraint and attendancy of the participants, Malaysia Weiqi Association had decided to just make it 五番碁.

Detail of the 五番碁 (gobango), can be found in the here(Forum of Malaysia Weiqi Association).

Thus, the first match of the event began on the 10th of October, 2009 in Japan Club of Kuala Lumpur.

———————————————-

The first 五番碁 match of Xinwen started playing against Alex Chan (kgs: veilchen). Xinwen had always acknowledged the strength and skills of Alex Chan and thus, Xinwen had decided to play with his top form with Tornament mode on, as well as treating the game as if he was playing in the upcoming International Tournament, Korea Prime Minister Cup.

The critical mistake done by Xinwen losing the game was playing at the move “15” instead of “A” then, later another Yose judgment mistake making the game even closer to just half-point.

The first 五番碁 match of Alex against Hock Doong started shortly after Xinwen’s. Hock Doong did not perform at his best.  Xinwen think some timing judgment was off from Hock Doong giving him some tough fight through out the games…
