Here you can see the results of each played game with date.
The first match:
My first impression was that black played for territory - due to the opening but than turned into influence play. So he can varies his play individual....like every pro should do - I guess :P He gained more and more territory after more exchanges. In the end white resigned cause of less points.
The second match:
Choi Cheolhan had a better day. The opening was better and I felt like his is playing more aggressive this time. In an early stage of the game white lost a group by gaining a bit territory on the right side. But compared I think it was a lot less points worth. Black didn't stop to ut pressure on white and Cho Hanseung resigned after 177 moves.
The third game:
From the beginning the game was influenced by fighting. Black played the Chinese opening and white fighted back immediatly. After saving a white group by Choi Cheolhan, black could gain more and more points for a comfortable lead. Choi Cheolhan resigned 173 moves.
The forth game:
After this game the standing was 2-2. Choi Cheolhan killed few groups of Cho Hanseung and could win by resignation.
The diciding match:
Cho Hanseung (black) vs Choi Cheolhan (white). The last game in the 55th Kuksu tournament. A fearce battle has begun. Black killed some of white's groups but couldn't get the lead on the board. A pae fight was in the end of that game. That was a dicisive moment in the game. After almost 300 moves Cho Hanseung won the game by 1.5 points and captured the title!
This is the game:
|Choi Cheolhan looks very diappointed after the result was offical.|
