An Younggil’s Pro Go Videos: 53rd Judan Final decider – Ida Atsushi vs Takao Shinji

The game was an interesting contest between Black’s challenging and aggressive style of play and White’s defensive and sophisticated style.

There wasn’t  any big fighting in the game, but neither player lost the balance, and you’ll enjoy this exciting game right up until the very end.

You can learn how to play when you are behind on territory, and also how to manage the situation when you are being attacked.

  1. I didn’t watch the video yet (I am sure it’s great 😀 ) however I wanted to point out that the youtube video is unlisted which means nobody watching your youtube channel will be able to see the video.

    The only way to watch it is to actually click the video link which you posted here.
    I hope this was not intentional 🙂

    • Well spotted! It has been fixed. The release on GGG doesn’t always align with Youtube especially because Youtube doesn’t have a schedule function (not an easy one anyway) but GGG does.

    I see you have moved the camera this time :).
    It’s been a blast to watch these commentaries every week. I’m happy to see the word has spread out quite quickly.
    Thanks to Mr An Youngil and ZJ for the regular uploads.

    • Younggil An says:

      Wow, you noticed that Pierre. 🙂

      Yes, we tried to change the angle a bit, and I hope it’s better than before.

      • Pierre says:

        Don’t worry, you looked handsome in the previous videos too 🙂 .
        Actually I was surprised how young you are.
        And everyone knows how low angles inspire awe and respect ;).

        • Younggil An says:

          Thanks Pierre for saying that. 🙂

          I hope you learn something new from the commentaries anyway.

  3. 선생님 좋아 보여요. 걱정하지마! ㅋㅋ Somewhere here, my answer was also K14 like one of the audience “You want to attack them all” Lol

    • Younggil An says:

      Thanks for your cheerful words.

      Actually K14 was also a good idea, though the actual game was more practical for Black.
