One of Xinwen’s weakness was to play against someone he knew, especially friend. This game was definitely not Xinwen’s favourite, and the only game he had resigned. Neverthless, 4th day was the last day for the tournament which was the 11th of September, 2013.

Diagram 1 (move 1 ~ 35), Xinwen who always thought highly in his fuseki until this game meeting James (Black); who controlled the speed very well. Especially the decision to make move 19 and move 25. White had not possession of sente.

Diagram 2 (move 9 ~ 58), Xinwen made the invasion at move 36 but ended up in a gote which worsen the situation because Black took move 43; immediately prompted Xinwen aggression to destroy the left but it turn out disastrous.

Not giving up, the game turned into moyo against territory which was a big chance for Xinwen especially when Black initiated the Ko plays at then B.

Last but not least, the final round against another familiar guy, Wynes Leong from Malaysia who always had high expectation from everyone. Wynes is also Weiqi Teacher for Malaysia Weiqi Association. Regardless, he is known for his aggression in style.

Diagram 1 (move 1 ~ 56),  Xinwen uses Black and his most confident fuseki, everything was set nicely until Wynes made a aggressive cut at move 56.

The game actually went on smoothly with few weird fancy moves by Wynes; nevertheless, the game was evenly matched until Xinwen fell behind in yose and resulted 180 for black.
