New Korean pro appeared on KGS!

Yesterday Diana Koszegi 1p (kgs account zsi) introduced a Korean pro player to kgs. His kgs name is aza 9d. His first game was against kgs star artem92. He was so kind to review the game afterwards. I added only his and Diana's comments to the game.

What do we know about aza? So far, Diana confirmed that it's her friend, a Korean pro player (not 1 or 2 pro dan). He's new to kgs and experienced some problems with kgs interface. He played two simultaneous games against Artem and Bum on 2 handicap and lost both on time. Though he said vs Artem he was a little behind, and vs BUM he was 13-14 points ahead. On Korean server byoyomi has sound, so it's easier to control time. I guess, it will take some time till he gets used to kgs as it's very different from Korean ones.


Unfortunately, Diana refused to reveal aza’s identity. What is your guess for his real name?

new clues from game vs dex morgan aka danigabi:
aza played lee changho several times and won; someone asked if they (aza and zsi) were about the same age. the answer to that: "zsi [1p]: people sometimes think.... same age.... ummm..."

The first game I mentioned in the post aza won on time vs Artem. Then he played two simultaneous games against Artem and Bum on 2 handicap and lost both on time.

You might be right! It will be a big sensation if aza turned out to be 9p and continue playing on kgs.

Seriously? Just because it's beeps instead of a counting voice the guy loses on time? He shouldn't play if he doesn't know how to use the software. The beeps for time are fine for most people (and the flashing numbers as well).

"...and lost both on time"

but the game says W+Time?

If we check Diana's facebook profile, we can find only one professional here - her good friend Kim Seungchun, 9p.
Maybe "aza" is Kim.

KGS would really need a counting lady as they have in all the Korean clients.. It's so frustrating to just listen to beepbeep:(
I don't think it's that difficult, as there is an unofficial and unapproved version of cgoban which already has it..
If Dia didn't want to reveal his name, he must be pretty strong :P
