Des Cann on the Top Board said "I formed a heavy group in the opening. However, I had to let it go and used some of the aji to build influence. I did well later and came back into the game, close going into the yose.

Then I formed another heavy little group of stones and dropped behind. However, worry about my first sacrificed group when in overtime led my opponent to slip up and suddenly my second heavy group of stones cut off some of his stones and he resigned."

Board 2 Alex Kent commented "A Nirensei fuseki occurred in my game and it ended up being a battle of large territories. The game was progressing fairly evenly until my opponent made a mistake which gave me a strong shape, making my moyo a lot stronger.
