Baduk's Charity for Haiti

Lee Changho and Lee Sedol played a charity game to help the Haiti's earthquake victims.
Of course this game drew a lot of attention, since this two long time rival were met for the first time, after their last game in the final of KBS Cup last year.

The event was the idea of Kingsfield Ltd, a company working on IT.

The players said that result doesn't matter in this game. They were concentrating in making an entertaining game to raise public's interest. Lee Changho won the game by resignation.

I'm a "victim" of Hikaru no Go. Too. ^.^ I shortly after got myself a Go board. Now I play on the server KGS. If anyone were to just try the game they would probably love it as much. I usually visit this site: Game Of Go
