Black move-13 and move-21 were astonished plays by Lee Sedol (李世乭) vs Kang DongYun (姜东润) during the recent on-going 8th ING CUP World Professional Go Tournament 2016.

18th Century Greatest Go Players



One of the greatest Go Series out there featuring two of the greatest Go players from the early 18th century: 范西屏 (Fan XiPing) and 施襄夏 (Shi XiangXia) during the reign 乾隆 (Qianlong Emperor). Both of them shares the same hometown, age and same teacher.

The series comprised of 8 Episodes with over 1 hour each show. The series also featured that Japanese Go community has already erased the fixed opening placement stone of Chinese-Rules which surprises the Chinese Go World until Chinese Go Association has established the new rules in 20th century.

当湖十局 (JiangHui Ten Games) was the historic event to decide the best players during the 18th century between 范西屏 and 施襄夏. Both of them had never played with each other ever since…

Their level is as strong as the current top fighters Lee Sedol!
