This tournament is brand new, and six teams participated in the competition. The six teams were America, China, the European Union, Japan, Korea and Taiwan.
After round 4, Korea and Japan were tied at 3-1 each. China swept all rounds, so this Japan vs Korea match was the decider for the silver medal.
This is the third time Lee and Yamashita have played. Lee won their last two games in 2005 and 2010.
I hope you enjoy this dynamic game, and if you have any questions, please feel free to leave a comment.
