Link to original photo page. I’ve played Go like this myself a couple of times, it is an interesting experience (and it needs some cooperation from the opponent, too, when deciding where the “virtual lines” are).
Here is the game record.
Next game will be played on May 27th and 28th.
The game will conclude tomorrow (May 15 in Japan).
After defeating Chang Hao in the previous round, Cho Chikun lost to Lee Changho by 3 points.
Lee Sedol of Korea defeated Kong Jie of China by 11 points.
Choi Cheolhan of Korea defeated Piao Wenyao of China by resignation. And Liu Xing of China, who seems to be the surprise of the tournament so far, defeated Park Yeonghun by resignation thus becoming the only Chinese player to play in the semifinals.
The semifinals will take place sometime in September and will consist of best-of-three matches. Lee Changho will play against Lee Sedol, and Choi Cheolhan will play against Liu Xing.
Looks like Cho Sensei is back in shape after his loses in Kisei and Judan earlier this year. He will play against Lee Changho in round 3. The only other Japanese player, O Meien, was eliminated by Liu Xing of China.
Next round will be played in 2 days. There are 4 players from Korea, 3 from China, and 1 from Japan.
