King of Kings (R5) : "Strive(P)" vs. "unorino"

       The 2 powers in GO, China and Korea, threaten to sweep the King of Kings' table by  all  players from other countries. Only one Mohican (Japanese) was left, "yumekaze", but he has very few chances tomorrow, as you can see from the pairings.
      Today another 3 "foreigners" were eliminated. If "friday2010" and "enjoyP", both from Taiwan, had minimal chances to produce a surprise against 9 P "monsters" like "YHPak" (Park Yeonghun) and "allKO(P)" (Gu Li), some  hope to see the third country (in our case Japan) advancing to the next round stayed in the game between "Strive(P)" and "unorino".
      As I mentioned in a previous post, "Strive(P)" has qualified for this stage, after a remarkable performance on the  Chinese server, during the 3 months (February, March and April) preceding the tournament. The fact that he managed to be the first ("tmch" and "lxlx" were the next) after such a hard work, shows that he is in excellent shape. Even though the Chinese player goes through such a good time, his Japanese opponent was very dangerous, as he had a very good score too : a winning ratio of about 2/1 and more than 37000 rating points.
    I cannot explain exactly what went wrong for "unorino", so as to see him running hopeless toward the center with one of his groups. That's how the story of this game was written under 150 moves.
    Tomorrow we have another great player to watch : "zhoury" (Zhou Rui Yang, China's number 1 !). He is, of course, the main attraction, but I am very eager to watch "Kyo(P)" - "wulu123" and "lxlx" - "Demon(P)" as well. In fact, I would like to see all games at the same time, if I could open more than 3 windows.

                                        "Strive(P)" 9D, China : 1670 - 953 (38241 p)

                                        "unorino" 9 D, Japan : 1074 - 680 (37571 p)

                  June 9 (results)

        "YHPak" (Korea) - "friday2010" (Taiwan)
        "allKO(P)" (China) - "enjoyP" (Taiwan)
        "Strive(P)" (China) - "unorino" (Japan)
        "IamVVIP" (Korea) - "heibeil" (China)
        "ShuYX(P)" (China) - "zzajang" (Korea) all by resignation
        I don't know when (or if) the game "WuYu(P)" (China) - "wldop" (Korea) will be played

                 June 10

        "zhoury" (China) - "yumekaze" (Japan)
        "gaoshan" (China) - "Anycall11" (Korea)
         "wubianqy" (China) - "kmomo(P)" (Korea)
         "Kyo(P)" (Korea) - "wulu123" (China)
         "lxlx" (China) - "Demon(P)" (China)
         "parang(P)" (Korea) - "oldmemory" (China)

     PS. It is possible  to see  "WuYu(P)" (China) - "wldop" (Korea) and "qnfaud" (Korea) - "sxkr" (China) also tomorrow.

You can see this rounds schedule at the link below. Unfortunately only on the Korean site as far as I know.
Games start at 8pm in Korea I think.
2011-06-10 11:06
1 p.m. (CET, like Berlin or Paris time) or 8 p.m. (Seoul time).
Thank you for the kind words about my work.

Which time will the games on June 10 (and other days) be played? Is there a schedule anywhere on the internet? Thanks for your work here :-)

I guess B9 (R5) was a mistake in the direction of play - Black should have played a pincer, I think

Black 25 looks bad. White 26 is so powerful.

Black tried to fight back but only made things from bad to worse

Only being able to open 3 windows drives me crazy too :-)
