Cho U, title holder of the Oza title, defeated challenger Yamada Kimio in the first game of this best-of-five title match.
This title must be quite important for Cho U: while he is still dominating the Japanese Go by the number of title he is holding, his very recent loss of Meijin title to Iyama Yuta is a sign that Cho U may not be in top shape anymore.
