66th Honinbo Title Series Starts!

The 66th Honinbo title series finally arrived. This year, Yamashita Keigo Honinbo will face the league winner, Hane Naoki, in a best-of-7 series.

The first game started today and will continue tomorrow. Hane Naoki got black in this game and did the sealing move for move 73.

Hane Naoki handed over his sealed move.

The position is quite difficult. Black's group at the right side and upper side are under attack. I think Yamashita could take the advantage from attacking them. However, white's group at the upper side and at the lower right are not settle as well.

Final position of day 1
