Magic Swords and Big Kills

The 2024 Championship Finals started with a bang as Philippe Renaut (White) engineered a massive kill to secure an early victory over Lu Xinqun (Black) in the first game of the best-of-three series.

In the review below, Philippe explains his thought processes and decisions during this fascinating fighting game. Veterans will enjoy the appearance of the now rarely seen (and horrendously complex) Magic Sword joseki.

The second (and potentially decisive) game will take place this coming Monday, April 22nd, at 8pm on OGS.
