Titleholder fights back in Meijin Title

Wednesday, October 17th, 2007

The title holder, Takao Shinji, kept alive his chances to defend the Mejin Title this year: he won today’s game by 2 and a half points, after what looked to me like a very good game for Black.

Takao won the first game of the series, but then Cho U won 3 in a row: one more loss for Takao and he is losing the title.

The score is now 3-2 for Cho U.

Cho U is just one step from winning Meijin Title: he won the 4th game by forcing a resignation in 141 moves.
