Who can stop 'Korondo'?

Here is another spectacular game played by 'Korondo' (Kim Young-sam) just minutes ago. His opponent was 'supertjc' (Tan Jia Cheng), a well-know player on KGS from Singapore, but even he was not strong enough to face up to Kim's powerful Korean fighting-style. The result in the end was just as impressive as the middle-game fighting: 'Korondo' killed almost all his opponent's groups on the board!

It was already revealed that Kim will participate in this year's European Go Congress, which is going to start in about one month. Strong players such as 'MilanMilan' and 'breakfast' commented that he has good chances of winning.

It will be a very exciting Go Congress. I am very curious to see how Alexander Dinerchtein will try to "keep the game as simple as possible" against Kim, if they are paired up :-)... Another interesting match would be Kim vs. Ilya Shikshin, as they haven't played each other on KGS yet - I am sure that it would be an electrifying game! And there are also high expectations for Thomas Debarre's performance.

Although I will be cheering for Europe, I agree that it's a safe bet that 'Korondo' will be the great winner.

q10 seems like a bit of an overplay :-)

Hm, does anyone know, why there are so many japanese players in list? Including 7(!) 6 dans. They have tour in Europe, and EGC is in program? ;-)
