An Younggil’s Pro Go Videos: How to maintain a small lead – Lian Xiao vs Kim Jiseok

This game, from the 16th Nongshim Cup, was very exciting. There was heavy fighting in the top left corner, but the game soon became well balanced.

The middle game was calm and quiet, but there was an big, unexpected ko at the end of the game and it’s exciting to watch.

You’ll learn how to play when you’re ahead by a small margin, and see a nice sacrifice strategy.
