Honinbo Dosaku Reborn?
have a new 9-dan player on KGS: 'DaoCe'.
heard many (I think unsubstantiated) rumors about his identity. Some think he
is himountain, others say he may be Eric Dai, and a few kibitzers (as usual)
referred the remote possibility of him being Lee Sedol...
think it is safe to say that he is from China because 'Dao Ce' is the
Chinese PinYin for 'Dosaku'.
Dosaku was the first Go Saint. Even today strong players awe at his Go talent.
It was easy to check if 'DaoCe' is, in fact, a Dosaku fan:
DanielTom: hello :-)
DanielTom: do you like
Honinbo Dosaku? :-)
'DaoCe' can speak English, and he is kind enough to chat with other users. I
believe that this is not his first account on KGS.
read that 'DaoCe' could be Liu Yuanbo 2p, as he is known to have had many
secret accounts on KGS, but (although it is a valid possibility) I don't think
it is very likely. (For one thing, 'MilanMilan' normally plays much faster than
true identity remains a mystery.
Go strength is quite high (pro level?), certainly enough for him to stay KGS 9-dan
in the future.
