The Crusade of "BC2012"


            Invincibility is fascinating. It is something like eternal youth. We hope that a miracle will happen and we will remain forever young. The miracle of GO would be for someone to remain forever unbeaten.
            Unfortunately, in a world without miracles, the only way you can remain undefeated is ... not to play. But, if you play, the question is how far you can get before the inevitable first loss. This race is also fascinating.
            Some time ago I wrote here about "pepsi0660", who started with a score of 174 - 0 !! In my opinion, he is not such a great champion, but managed somehow to exploit the weaknesses of the server.
           In this new post, there is an entirely different story. It is about an outstanding player, "BC2012", who I guess will stir much interest in the future. He made this account, in April this year, as 5D, and started with a 40 - 0 score, to reach the 9D in the fastest way possible. So far nothing special, as others traveled the same road up to the level of 9D, then they were not so convincing.
           Immediately comes the most interesting part. He won the first 10 games as 9D and let's find out some of  the opponents : "oneboat", "Strive(P)", "tmch", "sxkr"! Only top Chinese players. Does it remind you of something? "idontca1" (Park Junghwan, 9P) erupted on Tygem in a similar way, so "BC2012" could be someone from the same Korean caliber.
         I tried to find the significance of the name he chose. Because it is very unlikely to refer to BC as Before Christ, I am inclined to think that means "Burning Crusade" from World of Warcraft. It's like he intends to lead a crusade against all. Judging by the way  he won today against "Regretless", the 50th game without defeat, I think he carries some magic weapons to help him during the announced war against the rest of the world.


                                        "BC2012" 9D, Korea : 50 - 0 (36790 p)
                                        10 - 0  as 9D

                                        "Regretless" 9D, China : 100 - 21 (37609 p)


        Some other invincible players:

        "duohingke" 9D (Li Daichun, former amateur world champion) China : 60 - 0
        "ggeyx" 9D, China : 58 - 0
        "QingDao22" 7D, China : 56 - 0
        "IparkCafe" 9D, Korea : 44 - 0
        "revenge77" 9D, Korea : 41 - 0 (another very interesting new comer)
        "Poseidon96" 9D, Japan : 41 - 0
        "W_A_Mozart" 7D, Korea : 39 - 0

Hard to answer. He was able to make that impressive 60-0 score against players up to 7D.
After being promoted to 9D, he played only 2 free games, with 5 stones handicap, against a 3D opponent (one won by 52 points and the other by disconnection) and that was it.
It would have been interesting to see at least a few more games as 9D.

Dear Parik, what do you think about the level of Li Daichun? I know, he is one of the best amateurs in China and former WAGC winner. Can he beat top pros on Tygem?

Interesting guess also.
In this case he announced his candidature for the BC Card title in 2012.
Or to retain it ? Oops...Lee Sedol?

Maybe the BC is related to the BC Card Cup?
