Huge kill: Lee Sedol vs Qiu Jun

Huge kill: Lee Sedol vs Qiu Jun | Go Board Game | Scoop.it

This game is from the second round of the 9th Chunlan Cup. It’s between Lee Sedol (9p) and Qiu Jun (9p).

 

In this game there was a huge life and death battle and an enormous group was killed. It’s really rare to see such a huge group get chased and captured in top pros’ games, so I hope you to enjoy watching it.
