King of Kings (Final) : "gjopok" vs. "idontca1", game 3

            "gjopok" is the new Tygem King of Kings! He fully deserves the title, due to the fact that he played the most beautiful and elevated  games.
             Let's recall the  key moments of his way to victory.  He defeated the 2 big favorites who played under their real names, "zhoury" (Zhou Ruiyang, 5P, China's number 1) and "YHPak" (Park Yeonghun, 9P, Korea). All the games he won have been by resignation, except the dramatic half-point decider against "zhoury" in the quarterfinals.
             In the match against "idontca1", he had the power to turn the table after a bad start. The last game was a little bit unusual from the perspective of thinking time. When "gjopok" entered the overtime, "idontca1" had still 12 minutes on his clock. Then, after the interesting sequence, 71 - 73 at D6 - D5, played by black, "idontca1" fell on thoughts at his turn also. He made a successful invasion in the top right corner, with 106 - 108 at S13 - R17, but "gjopok"  continued to play so well, that did not leave any chance to white.
              The tournament kept its specific note of mystery until the last day. According to some early rumors, we still believed, during the first rounds, that "allKO(P)" was Gu Li (instead Chen Yaoye), "idontca1" was Lee Sedol and "gjopok" was  Cho Hunhyun. During the final 3 games  all the Korean and Chinese observers were referring to "gjopok" as Lee Sedol and "idontca1" as Park Junghwan. Their confidence makes me believe that media in Asia already revealed the true identity of the finalists.

                                         "gjopok" 9D (Lee Sedol, 9P, ?) Korea : 164 - 53 (38190 p)
                                         "idontca1" 9D (Park Junghwan, 9P, ?) Korea : 181 - 71 (36868 p)

Hi, Rui.
"pm" is very kind and well informed so that he already responded the most of the questions you have posed.
What I can add is that the names are case-sensitive, so you must write idontca1 and allKO(P) if you want to find these players and see their games. Unfortunately, the games cannot be downloaded (maybe possible for full members, I don't know).
Every time I asked an administrator or a helper about a list of top players (rating point or betting points), I've received no answer, as would be a big secret. I still believe that such classifications are available for someone with a full membership.
The only Tygem title that I know so far is King of Kings.
Mozart_W_A is one of my favorite players who has a rating over 40000 points (41640). Besides joonki (Seo Nunwook, 9P, 43126) you may find gkwls ( Lee Jaeung, 6P, 41896) or pepsi0660 (41056), but as "pm" already pointed out they are not necessarily the best.
To list of "pm" I would add many others, like ioiwin(P), gjopok, GoldHammer, 930115, oneboat, wulu123, xiangbo, meijinn67, arrowmint, Yansi...

i cant answer all your questions, but some i will try :)
strenght - rating points on tygem are not telling you the real strenght of player, because it is connected also to number of played games - it means that players who are 8d and have maybe 10000 of played games can have more rating points than e.g. Idontca1 :)
yes there are players with more than 40000 (e.g. joonki)
other functionality is probably for normal members (not free), we have to wait until full membership will be open to all players (english and co)
if you want to know the strenght of player you have to look to player history, opponents and their history and more ... (you can start with e.g. Marriag(P), Idontca1, ddcg, AllKO(P), Strive(P), tmch, detective, charisma24, 3586, kobra, biohazard, ...)
i thing lot of information are on korean web sites

Hello, nice coverage over the tournament! I am new to TYGEM and have some questions. Please help me out.

Is there a list of the strongest players similar to KGS?
Are there players with a 40.000+ rating?
Is rating number really comparable to strength in the 37000 to 40000 range?
Can you download all the games of one player, e.g. of Idontca1?
Is there a list of the richest betting players?
Is there a title after God Hestia?

Thank you very much in advance!!

Mr. Stefanov, thanks so much for all your effort in reporting the highlights of this tournement, your posts were always fun to read and intriguing. The triggered curiosity , especially on "idontca1", help me to find some additational rumors -which are possibly impossible to be confirmed- telling that Park Junghwan sometimes uses this account cooperatively with Lee Sula, his partner in pair go, to train themselves for the tournements. This, maybe, explains the slumps or comperatively bad matches he involved.
