Iyama Continue His Rivalry With Cho U

It seems that this year's Kisei is not the last time we will see Iyama-Cho U's clash as Iyama Meijin beat Takao Shinji (9 dan) at the final of the 49th Judan final.

Iyama Yuta succesfully enter the final by winning the winner section. The road was not as steady for Takao as he lost at the first round from So Yokoku (8 dan), but he gained back his form and drove all the way at the Loser section and eventualy became the winner.


Iyama Yuta Meijin

Takao actually broke his jinx against Iyama with his 4.5 points victory over the Meijin at the 4th Daiwa Cup Grand Champion tournament but it wasn't enough for him to break Iyama's tight wall.

The first game will be played at March 3.

Here is the game record:
Iyama Yuta (white) vs. Takao Shinji (black). Result: W+R
