Nongshim Cup 2008

Nongshim Cup is a team tournament between China, Korea and Japan: each team member keeps playing until they lose once, at which point they get replaced by the next team member. In the past few days, Chang Hao of China eliminated Takao Shinji of Japan and Lee Changho of Korea, and he’s playing with Park Yeonghun of Korea as I am writing this (I am following the game live on Cyberoro). Photo of the end of the game between Chang Hao and Takao Shinji: Chang Hao won by 2.5 points.

Yet another photo from the same moment, different angle: Takao smiles even in defeat. I like the little kid in the background: maybe a future Go champion?

Chang Hao defeated Lee Changho next, by 0.5 points.

I also liked the following photo. Since Nongshim, the sponsor of this international tournament, is an instant noodles producer, is this one of the prizes? :-)
