The Ultimate Winning Style

Again due to life priorities, no blogging for me in a while, and I find it hard to put mind in Go.

Until this weekend morning, I stumbled upon this brilliant game between Andy Liu and Zi-yang Hu in 2014 US Go congress. I am not really at a level to pick on their games, but this game simply touched me.

I am one of those admirers of Andy's speedy, highly-efficient and powerful style. However in this game, he was completely controlled by black's natural and reasonable play. The flow of the game overall is simple and without much complicated stuff, maybe except the final blow in upper left corner.

To me this is a good example of the ultimate winning style in tournaments.
