6-dan is 6-dan. Respect him!

Maybe you saw the special event in the past, called Pro-pro handicap. Famous Japanese pros played each other
on big handicap (6-9 stones). If you like, I can post some games. The task was to find the proper
handicap estimation in points.
This game is not the regular game too. How can real KGS 6-dan lose someone on 6 stones handicap?
It's too much! Black proved it. Anyway, it's fun to watch the way of tricking your opponent in hopeless position.
I am sure that Ang Li, 3p is one of the best handicap-game masters in the world. He can give few stones bigger handicap,
comparing to other pros.

Alexander, it would be very interesting to see pro-pro handi games! Would you be so kind to post some please?

Yeah i swa this game too. Black was very disapointed, because it was a one-sided game. I have to say i would fell unsatisfied, too.
BUT it was not nice of the audience to say bad things about Ang Li ... maybe he underestimated Black but Black gave him a lesson^^. I also think that the pupil should choose the handicap.

After the game, I remember Lyon mentioning something about wanting to have fun as one reason for the handicap.

I would be curious whether this was a sponsored game of sorts (=for free) or he actually received payment from KGS for that particular lesson. Because in the latter case, I'd have to say it would be a disappointment to put your own fun before the pupils teaching.

Shouldn't the handicap be the pupils descision in this case? Ben0 was displeased with this game, as he said afterwards.
