Javier Savolainen (ErgoProxy) won the supergroup of the Insei League with the perfect score!

Javier Savolainen (ErgoProxy on KGS) from Finland is the winner of the September Insei League on KGS (Supergroup)!
He beat flashback (Jan Simara) yesterday in 1st prize deciding game. Javier will get 150 USD as his first prize in the supergroup.
He is one of the top players in Finland and former offline insei (Yoo Changhyuk's Baduk School in Korea).
We plan to publish big interview with Javier in next Goama magazine. Please suggest your questions here in comments section.

Seems to me w R19 at S18 would have made live, b shortage on R16 group prevent b from the kill.

W S18-T17-S16-T16-T18-T15-O18

B need connect at P14 w alive.


W S18-O18-T15-T16-T17-T14-T19

w alive.

I could add more variation but I think I covered the most basics ones here.

Was a nice game though.

A question: "How is go-life in Finland? Is there a healthy community of players?"

He studied in Lee Ki Bong Interbational baduk academy in Korea when I visited Korea last time. Javier was 6d already and trying hard to become stronger.

For interview: what did he do to enter Yoo Changhyuk's Baduk School? Did he learn korean?

Hi, I'd lie know what Go for him? Is it hobby or profession? Does he want to become a pro player and earn money from Go?
