Yamashita Keigo Took the Lead

As I mentioned yesterday, the 65th Honinbo league is entering the final round with the end of the last game of the 6th round, between Yamashita Keigo and Takemiya Masaki.

Yamashita won the game as white with 4.5 points margin. With this, he is tied 5-1 to Iyama Yuta who was leading the league.

The last round will be played in April 1. If both Yamashita and Iyama won their games, Yamashita will be the challenger, but if both lose their games and Takao Shinji won his, he will challenge Hane Naoki to reclaim his title for the second time.

The challenger spot is still open for the three oft them.
