I don't know who is the bigger crybaby - this 8 years old from one year ago, or the grown ups who make such a big deal out of this video :-)

Cho Chikun is known for crying sometimes, when he lost important title games. One such case is described here: https://senseis.xmp.net/?ChoChikun but there are others too...

Another one I read in Go World recently: after the 7th game of the Meijin title from 1985, Kobayashi Koichi commented "Cho started crying after I played this invasion" (the invasion ruined Cho's last hope to win the game, and therefore the match).


I love Cho Chikun. He's so wonderfully human. And that in the age of robots! :D

Sumire is playing Joanne Missingham this week (20 Feb) on the Go & Shogi Channel (but the premium service). We also now have a game of hers against Cho Hun-hyeon. She lost, taking Black, but lasted 192 moves!

I looked just briefly at the WBaduk comments on the game with Joanne, it looks like Sumire missed some chances in the 2nd half of the game (they show at least 3 places where she could have played much more severe moves).



I also enjoyed these photos and videos from the event, looks like Takemiya is a big fan of her already :-) https://www.facebook.com/permalink.php? ... 8996189871

She said "I will work harder in future.". She is speaking very fluent Korean.

She will become 1p officially 4/1.

Here is a reasonably meaty article from John Power on her background: http://www.usgo.org/news/2019/03/the-po ... ra-sumire/

This game was played 9 months before Sumire achieved a jigo (even, taking komi) against a top pro, Cho U.

9 months represents about 15% of her entire playing career, and I'd wager that she was working very much harder then ever in those last 9 months. So, in her case, a massive improvement after the Tygem game is not really surprising. I think, also, that for people of limited experience (of any age) we must expect a lot of deep blips as they encounter new experiences, and the recent Ch'oe Cheong game may come under that category.


Sorry for the late reply, but I think you are mistaken. A Korean friend told me that this particular game was in fact played on February 8th of 2019, not nine months prior as you had stated. The game was arranged when Sumire did a celebratory tour of South Korea as a 'newly-minted' professional. Her opponent was an amateur 5-Dan who was picked to play Sumire because he was of the same age, born in the same month in fact.

I know this is just one game, but coupled with Sumire's other games against professional players in which she was absolutely trounced, I can't help but have reservations about Sumire's promotion to the professional ranks. Her promotion to me looks more and more like a desperate publicity stunt. What were the adults thinking? Has anyone considered Sumire's welfare?

For what it's worth, here is a link to a tvbaduk segment showing the same game, video has been online since August 2018: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=38lLu2B96EQ
