Cho U Captures Kisei Title!

Game five of the 34th Kisei title resulted in Cho U’s win, which ensured his capturing of the title from Yamashita Keigo by a 4-1 score. Yamashita captured the Kisei title in 2006 from Hane Naoki, then defended it for 3 consecutive years.

It looks like Cho U’s bad form from 2009 has not followed him in 2010.

Here is the game record from the last game: Cho U played white and won by 1.5 points.
