You can’t expect when it will come but when it’s popped it leaves trail of smell where people talk about it. Well in this case in positive manner.
This morning as usual, before I do some serious work I logged in to KGS, KGS has fewer strong go players compare to IGS or Tygem, however sometimes strong player visiting KGS and in this story just now.
This game is between fanweiqi [9d] and yinhang [5d?] the different with other server in KGS you can not choose your first rank, so you have to play by “ladder” play with weaker rank first then climb to against stronger and more stronger opponent.
fanweiqi is not Fan Hui (the first pro played against AlphaGo) as stated in his profile and yinhang is clearly not a 5 dan he is much stronger than that, in this game white is clearly had sharper Katana the fight is amazing in this game clearly yinhang is quite strong.
The fight initiated at move 18 but I guess it’s a must move otherwise black wall is thick, move 78 might be a mistake I think because it’s resulted bad for white, eventually black fights back and it’s amazing to see.
Here’s the full game:
