Shibano won by half a point and thus takes the Oza title!

The fourth game of the Tengen final between Iyama and Kyo Kagen was played a few days ago. Iyama won rather convincingly, tying up the score to 2-2. The last game will be played in Tokushima on the 18th.

Hurray for the big avalanche! I can't make sense of the move order though.

Yeah, rare to see it these days. Did you mean starting with the q6 pull back? The idea of that over hane is probably because if black pulled back at r4 white would tenuki and treat the stones lightly instead of blocking at r6 (maybe fears a black pincer combining with attack on upper group instead of defending at o3?), so he doesn't play r6 to start. Of course Iyama isn't going to slackly r4 so pushes at r6 and it revents to avalanche. As to why not avalanche initially, I guess he wants to give Iyama the choice to play a bad move. Iyama then played the s4 move that old joseki books say is a mistake but AlphaGo said was best.

Iyama beat Kono Rin in the first Kisei game by 5.5 points. Bots had him behind for quite a while but Kono seemed to play quite a few slack moves in fights.

Iyama isn't really known for being someone who plays a lot, or especially well, on the internet (his fox account has 54 wins and 89 losses for example). He has however been participating in a pro tournament on fox called 第一期野狐人气争霸赛, where he has been beating up Chinese pros left and right (including people like Xie Ke, Jiang Weijie, and Chen Yaoye, who he beat in the semifinal in a bo3) to reach the final.

The final is against Tong Mengcheng and it's best of 3 as well, with 1h thinking time each and 40secx3 byo yomi. Game 1 of the final was played today and Iyama managed to win with half a point. I'm not sure when the second game will be played as the Fox website doesn't show a date yet. The winner of the tournament will win 500 000 RMB, which is about $72 000 and the runner-up will receive 150 000 RMB or ~$22 000.

Very interesting! I don't play (or even observe on Fox). How many such pro tournaments are run on Fox?

Iyama won the 3rd Kisei game against Kono Rin, just 1 more win needed on 14/15 Feb to defend his title.

Iyama managed to lose from a good position after the first day and much of the second. Still he's got several chances to avoid a Kono Comeback.

Shibano Toramaru,Kyo Kagen and Ichiriki Ryo are climbing up in leagues and that might be last chance for Kono to win big title. If he does not win it (and looks that he wont, even if Iyama must be pretty angry for losing from such a good position according to bot he had at some point 90% wr) - i predict he will never win any big title anymore.
