Game 4 of Meijin

The fourth game of the 35th Meijin championship was played at October 6. This time challenger Takao Shinji will go all out against Iyama Yuta Meijin. Takao Shinji must win this game or he must wait one more year for another shoot at the title since Iyama is leading the series with 3-0.

At the end of day 1, Takao Shinji started a fight by attacking black's weak group at the upper board. However, white must be very careful since his group at the upper right is not yet settled.

Iyama handled his sealing move.
