After the final endgame lesson there was a special event. The winner of the camp league was supposed to play against a top professional. The only person with just one loss was Lionel Zhang, 6 Dan from US.

|Live commentary of the Kobayashi Opening played by Lionel.|
|Yukawa-sensei is writing down his next move.|
|Subsequent analysis of the game.|
I got a tea cup that was created to celebrate Yuki-senseis Tengen title for writing this blog. I really appreciated that but was therefore unable to make a picture of all the prize winners since I had to be there, too.
|Maeda-sensei was a bit confused about the prizes.|
We even got an additional Shamisen presentation by Nakano-sensei. Most of us used the last chance to perform typical Japanese music themselves and went to a Karaoke bar later that night.
After a long night of celebrating on Saturday everybody had to leave. Some people had to go home immediately others spent a few days more in Japan but everybody agreed that it would be great to come back next year.
With this post I close the coverage of the Osaka Go Camp. I hope you enjoyed reading the blog.
I would like to learn more about how you liked it so feel free to leave a comment with praise or blame.
Finally I would like to thank the organizers Maeda Ryo and Li Ting again for inviting all of us to Osaka.
|The only picture of both I could found.|
