This is a commentary of a top game from the 32nd World Amateur Go Championship (WAGC) in Japan.
Bai (China) is a 20 year old young guy, and Hirata (Japan) is 84. Hirata used to be one of the four great amateur players in Japan, and his playing is still very keen even though he’s very old now.
After Bai won this game, he swept all 8 of his games and won the tournament. Hirata’s score was 6-2 after losing this game, and he was ranked in 5th place. However, it’s still amazing as he is 84 years old. I can’t imagine how he can play so beautifully at his age.
