Aoki vs. Fan

Answer: Fan Yujing won by 6.5 points.

Fan Yujing

Here is the beginning of the game (Fan plays Black):

Aoki vs. Fan

And here is an interesting exchange that took place at move 78: White (Aoki) decided to sacrifice the stones on the middle of the right hand side, but they retain potential (and came back to life later in the game).

In the 3rd game of 6th Jeongganjang Cup, Lee Sula 1-dan of Korea played against Aoki Kikuyo 8-dan of Japan.

I don’t know for sure who won since Go Topics hasn’t published the game record yet and I cannot read Korean… but I have my own theory about the result, given the following photos:

(By the way, behind Aoki Kikuyo one can see Jujo).
