King of Kings (last 8) : "YHPak" vs. "allKO(P)"

            Park Yeonghun is the first semifinalist after a deserved victory. "allKO(P)" applied, somehow, the same strategy that worked so well against "wubianqy", trying to make small points on the edges. Something went wrong and the black groups did not cooperate well together.
           You know how passionate is the Asian audience. The Korean observers started to celebrate victory yelling that white wins and a disappointed Chinese guy could not answer other than a frustrating "yes".  Maybe, with his last move, 223 at Q18, black was hoping to take that corner by a miracle, but such miracles do not happen at this level. Or maybe it was a sign that he admitted the defeat, like throwing a stone randomly on the board, because he resigned immediately after that.
           However, a small argument broke out in the end between the two kibitzers sides, because "YHPak" used the usual greetings " Hello. Nice to meet you." and " I had a nice game with you.",  while "allKO(P)" didn't say anything at all. I am sure that  he didn't mean to be impolite, but rather he did not have the chat window activated.
          Just to remember how time passes, Park Yeonghun played for the first time on Tygem, under the handle "YHPak", in January 2002. At that time he was only 2P. Today he is 9P and one of the best players in the world.

                                               "YHPak" (Park Yeonghun, 9P) Korea

                                               "allKO(P)" 9D (Chen Yaoye, 9P) China : 324 - 128 (37351 p)
