Irish Summer Go Cup – Round 8

Our Round 8 review is here!
These are back to wall games now.
James as the last player of his team continues to maintain ANI’s hope alive after a new victory against Piotr from team Chochihun. The game was very balanced with James taking a clear lead but blackpete slowly coming back into the game by attacking and building a moyo of his own.
In the end though some tricky reading in the center ended up with White wrapping up the game.

On the other board, Peter and John, some regular opponents, went for big moyo chase also. Again an early lead for Peter as John misread a corner, but a big moyo attracted a big dragon and John created a few opportunities for himself to try and kill a big group to come back. In the end Peter managed to live and then to draw a massive territory in a quarter of the board leaving no chance of come back.

The league is now down to 8 players and each victory brings the team really close to the final Cup Win!
