"Iansy" : The art of displacement


         Some years ago I followed a documentary movie called "The art of displacement". It was about people moving efficiently through their environment. They traversed urban structures full of obstacles by running, jumping, vaulting or rolling, all with flowing grace. I don't know how, but, when I saw "Iansy" in action today, that movie came through my mind : a graceful and wise player moving efficiently through GO environment.
       "Iansy" gave me headaches at the end of February. He played a very nice game against "arrowmint" (supposed to be Yoda Norimoto, 9P, Japan) and I could not find the right translation for his name ( he was the only player whose name I could not translate and,  at that time, English Tygem was not available). I took a picture with his name in Chinese and I tried to add it to the post. The result was that the game disappeared the next day, as well the title shortly after. The problem couldn't be solved more than 2 weeks.
        At that time I knew nothing about "Iansy" and I had imagined him as a young genius (as he played extremely fast and powerful against Yoda). Now I can give more information about this extraordinary player.
         He registered on 30 October 2005, as 5D,  and he reached the 9D level, very fast, on December the same year. Let's take a look at his results as 9D  and stunning series of consecutive wins (maybe like no other player on Tygem):

       14 - 0   August 2006
        9 - 0    3-4 October 2006
        7 - 0    5-6 October 2006
       13 - 0   7-10 October 2006
        9 - 0    July 2008
       10 - 0   December 2008
       10 - 0    February - March 2009
       10 - 0    April - May 2009
       17 - 0    December 2009 - January 2010
       10 - 0    February 2010
        9 - 0     July 2010
        9 - 0     January 2011
       17 - 0     last games

        Very impressive, isn't it ?  If I add that , on 19 October 2006, he played a match of 6 games against "showmewthe" (supposed to be Choi Cheolhan, 9P, Korea) and won it by 5 - 1 (!), we have a complete picture of a marvelous Tygem star.
       After I published his game against "arrowmint", he didn't play anymore (but he was sometimes present as an observer). Today he was back just for another 5 - 0 score and it is an interesting story about his opponent and the game that I decided to post.
      "skeyble" registered on December 2010,  as 3D,  and won everything until he reached 9D : 18 - 0 as 3D, 20 - 0 as 5D, 20 - 0 as 7D , 1-0 as 9D, so he started with a 59 - 0 score. Before this meeting, he won 8 games in a row (as 9D) and then lost to "QiuS(P)" (China), so his score was 8 - 1 from last 9 games.
      "Iansy" was merciless. He won against "skeyble" with 3-0. Watch one of these games (see how he combated the standard Chinese opening and take a look at a special move : 38 at Q4 !!) and make your own opinion about who this wonderful  player might be.
        I bet he is one of the best Chinese professionals.

                                        "Iansy" 9D, China : 609 - 275 (38200 p)
                                         17 - 0 last games

                                        "skeyble" 9D, China : 83 - 18 (35494 p)
                                         started with 59 - 0

Black 65 - the losing move. Have to kill lower stones instead.
