Lee Changho resigns while winning
Lee resigned this game when he was winning, but even when Lee resigned, the game was almost finished, and Won already knew he’d lose the capturing race. It’s unbelievable that Lee misread an easy move.
Lee Changho is still the most famous and favourite player to many of Go fans, and it’s such a pity we can’t watch his playing in Fujitsu Cup this year. Most of Korean Baduk fans want him to be in the international tournaments without any qualifiers, and I don’t know if Korean Baduk Association makes an exception for Lee.
A controversial ranking system
In my opinion, Lee doesn’t have to play this qualifier game for the main tournament. The current ranking system in Korea is controversial.

What do you think?
Should Lee Changho automatically qualify for international tournaments like the Fujitsu Cup? Is past performance more important than a single knockout tournament? Will you miss Lee’s games this year?
