Zen beat Iyama by resignation. Michael Redmond commented that Zen had a 10 point lead toward the end, forcing Iyama to start a ko that he had no hope of winning...

Congrats to anyone who choose Park Jungwhan.
It's my curse that I'll never bet in the right slot, hope Densei-sen this Sunday prove me wrong.

Whilst Iyama did the honourable thing in resigning a clearly lost game, I do wonder if Zen could actually close out the win to counting if he played on. It's a bit weird if it is happy to throw away points when it thinks it is winning by a little, but not a lot. Maybe too much shame if he won that way, even more so in Japanese culture?

Even better, I think, to train under Button Go with a komi of 7, where at its turn each player could take a button worth 0.5 point under Chinese rules. Then if Black took the last dame to score 7 points on the board, White could take the button to win, while if White took the last dame to score 7 points on the board, Black could take the button to win. :D

That's my favorite scoring system and I would love to see it becoming the norm. Japanese-style scoring is a logical product of tradition, but also a logical anomaly.

Small plug: You can play Go with integer komi, button and area scoring on igGameCenter. I added that option myself, with permission from the site owner, out of dissatisfaction with territory scoring. I also added all the remaining board sizes from 5x5 to 19x19.

The Nihon Kiin was hyping up this event so much but I didn't see a single news from them since the tournament started. Came to check and it's already over.
