Lee Changho uses magic to kill a big bad shark : "ioiwin(P)" vs. "shark86"
It is funny ! Every time I watch Lee Changho live, he kills somebody. Maybe I should get used to his new punisher image.
Today he killed a big bad fish, a Taiwanese shark. The shark deserves his name, because he has a very aggressive style, trying "to swallow his enemies". He just succeeded to do it 5 times in a row, before this confrontation.
Perhaps you already imagined that it was not a soft kill this time. It was a direct clash between 2 "one-eye only" groups, after a black invasion within white's territory (or sphere of influence if you like). The beauty of the game lies in the way Lee prepared, in the finest detail, the fighting scenario, with very profound and unexpected moves (such as 95 and I let you guess where).
In the end, like a magician, he pulled an ace from his sleeve, with move 125. After seeing that move, white resigned. I am sure he had a good reason, but several observers started a debate about what should follow, with different opinions. My only regret is that the game didn't continue a few more moves just to show the best sequence. Any comment on why white gave up is welcome.

I do not really feel like an expert. I just try to share with you my joy of watching some beautiful Tygem games.
It is not always easy to be there at the right moment and write the right words, but I hope that the games themselves speak better than anyone.
