The Qualification (preround) for the German (national) GO Championship 2014 (in September the final games) took place this weekend….
Professional In-Seong Hwang (8D), counted as the strongest player of EGF (European GO Federation) living in Grenoble (Switzerland) gave four (audio) reviews Saturday and Sunday on KGS from the prerounds 3, 4 and 6. Tks to German GO Association making this available.
Following postings are the 3 of 4 replays (mostly not complete till last move), from In-Seong’s reviews…
The game of Franz-Josef Dickhut with Benjamin Teuber might be the most interesting, as FJ as white had to run over half the board wthout having a living group, and still wining the game…
Franz-Josef is probably the strongest player Germany ever had winning 11 national championships, see Wikipedia… http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Franz-Josef_Dickhut
Benjamin Teuber is a GO professional who lived in China, well known (but not only) for his Blog you can find on SL -Sensei’s library…. http://senseis.xmp.net/?HalfAYearInChina
