King of Kings (last 19) : "zhoury" - "xg(P)"

           Is there any chance left that "idontca1" to be really Lee Sedol ? Today, while "idontca1" played against "lxlx" in the King of Kings, Lee Sedol played against Hong Seonji in the Baduk League.
           So why do I ask if there any chance left ? I was ready to say, ok, forget about this nice, but false, rumor and let's go on.
          However there are some details that still leave room for hope. It's about timing and how the King of Kings takes place now. They announced (at pro live broadcast section) that the game LeeSD(P9D) - HongSJi(P8D) should start, while "idontca1" was still playing. They started (maybe by pure coincidence) only some minutes after "idontca1" finished his game. At this stage, every player from King of Kings must have a Tygem official near him during the game and I think it is a good rule against cheating. Is it possible that Lee Sedol played, in the presence of a Baduk League official, in other room and then he went to the main playing hall to meet Hong ?   
          Hard to believe, but possible. For my part, it would have been better without that timing coincidence, just to clarify things.
          Today all favorites displayed their  beautiful and different styles. "zhoury" had the most difficult game, the only one won by points. How he managed to keep the position under control and maintain a perfect balance, so as to win by komi, this  is something to be admired.
