Post subject:  Quintuple Ko : CHECK !

Here's a record by Ohashi Hirufumi (6p) against a strong opponent - Kubo Niwa, if google's translation is not too far off (please someone confirm), in which occured a quintuple Ko.

As far as I know, this is the first example of a quintuple ko happening in a real game. It was played on June 30th, 2013.
I'm surprised I found no mention of it on L19, maybe I just missed the thread.

You can find his short article about it here : http://blog.goo.ne.jp/minamijyuujisei_1984/e/57b92a566d71afd1af1afa169e6a6788
and you can replay his game there : http://gokifu.net/t.php?s=1601372600398612

I also add the sgf here, so in case the previous links break (or my computer crashes), at least it will be saved.



Enjoy !

cgbspender, Thanks. It's fun to hold down the Right Arrow key to fast forward and see all the flip-flopping ko's. :)

It was probably never mentioned because it was a teaching game against an amateur in a 3 person simul. It's interesting for fun, but it didn't happen in an official pro match.

I would hate to record that kifu.

They probably just created the game record after it was all over, simply because of the unusual finish.

Yes, nice! I suppose you took the sgf from http://homepages.cwi.nl/~aeb/go/rules/quadruple_ko.html#5ko, but there no player names or dates are given.
Maybe White is Ohashi Hirofumi (6p)? Maybe Black is Kuboniwa Takashi? Maybe the game was on 2013-06-29?

Why? It is easy. At the bottom of every kifu page is a space for recording additional stones played on a point.

Looking at this game, I'm not sure why white doesn't take the five black stones in the top left. That seems to break the quintuple ko apart as far as I understand it, but I haven't studied it deeply. What's up with this?

I mentioned it over a year ago as being one of two quintuple ko games in the GoGoD database. The first was from 1937. Both involved amateurs, and the latest one was from a simultaneous display, so we need not take them too seriously.

How strong is Kuboniwa, is there any extra information about this player?
