Old friends

I was very touched to see this photo! The reason is that the two famous professional players from the photo, Kobayashi Koichi and Cho Chikun, have been rivals for many years, as both have dominated the Japanese Go in the 1980s and 1990s.

Both studied Go as kids in the famous Kitani Minoru school, and according to this source their score against each other is very-very close.

It is so nice to see Cho’s hand around Kobayashi’s shoulder, as they look over – what else? – a game of Go, online…
