Two Is Enough

In danger of being evened by the Senior team, Female team decided to send Lee Sula (1 dan) to face Seo Bongsoo (9 dan) who beat 2 Female team's members consecutively. The 18 years old Lee Sula did her job and won the game by resignation.

The game started in an Anti Mini Chinese opening. Lee Sula abandoned her pinched two stones at the bottom right corner and tried to get a big moyo at the left side instead. However, she managed to escape the two stones as Seo Bongsoo decided to take the upper right corner and a big chunk at the right side.

Lee Sula found a good tesuji at move 59. Seo couldn't capture the attacking stone and soon his group in danger.

Lee again showed a strong attack with move 169. Seo who though his group was safe played a questionable K2. Lee responded with a splitting move at G14 and eventually captured the whole center with the cut at G11. Seo Bongsoo resigned at move 191.

With this victory, Female team take the lead again. Lee Sula will play Kim Soojang (9 dan) next week.

What? Don't mess up with me!
