The 32nd World Amateur Go Championship started yesterday in Matsue, Japan. Nothing unexpected in the first two rounds, but the third round came with a big surprise: Japan lost to Norway!! The Japanese representative this year is Mr. Hironori Hirata who will be 85 next month. He participated several times at this championship in the past, and even won it once. Too bad he made a blunder in this game: he failed to protect against a simple threat and a big group of his died. If he defended, he would have won by a few points (maybe less than komi).
Here is the complete game.
