Friday, September 25th, 2009
Iyama Yuta took the lead in his Meijin title challenge when he defeated title holder Cho U by resignation in game three.

The game record is here.

Here is the video of the game commentary by Takao Shinji:

Game four is scheduled for October 7th and 8th. The complete tournament table can be found here.

Iyama Yuta won the second game of the Meijin title match by resignation, thus evening the score so far.
Meijin 2009, game 2

The game record is here. The beginning of the game looked strange to me – Cho U (white) built a lot of central influence by choosing to play two avalanche joseki, but all that influence got ruined pretty quickly… at least that’s my perception.

Here is a video commentary by Cho Chikun:

Complete tournament table here. Game three will be played on September 24th and 25th.

Fansubbing Go Videos

Thursday, April 2nd, 2009
Joe Goh has recently created English subtitles for a Chinese video of a professional game commentary. Joe declared:
Its my hope that this will kickstart a fansubbing community for Go videos, similar to the ones we have for anime now. There’s a treasure trove of Go videos all over the Internet, just waiting to be translated and brought to an even bigger audience! 
I am hosting Joe’s first fansubbed videos at this link. I also started a general Go / Baduk videos page to collect interesting videos. Please feel free to suggest more public videos that you liked!  

Video interview with Cristian Pop

Tuesday, January 29th, 2008
I found a video interview with Cristian Pop (Solaris on KGS). The random Go videos page was recently added, and as I found this interview by chance while browsing through the videos I thought it may be a nice addition to my own interview with Cristian for those of you who want to know him better. By the way, both the “random Go photo” and “random Go video” pages are automatically generated from photos, respectively videos tagged with Go / Baduk / Weiqi related terms; as such, they may or may not be really related to the “Game of Go”; sometimes people tag some trip photo “baduk” just because it was taken during a tournament, for instance, even if there is no trace of Go board in it :-)
