Is there any professional commant available for the final game between Ilya Shikshin and Catalin Taranu?
That's right, jim gave the verdict that black won and some supporters of Taranu jubilated.
Though, another high rated player (I don't remember his name exactly) said that they all might be wrong.

There is no hate at all in my comment, just a little bit of sarcasm regarding some "experts" in KGS chat :))
Yes, I know this is a Go site. And my quote is from Russian classical book - I'm sure new European Champion knows many parts of it by heart :))
Congratulations to Ilya and all the Russian team. Great respect to Catalin and all other participants.

WinPooh, don't you think you go too far with your hate ?
This is just a go site. Don't read this newspaper, if you don't like it.

> Jim(6dan) said all the time that white had no chance to win and the game was over. Other spectators cheered every move made by mr.Catalin like he played brilliantly, while mr.Shikshin made only mistakes.
'...And, God forbid - never read Soviet newspapers before
'M'mm . . . But there are no other newspapers.'
'In that case don't read any at all.'

Ilya said that he was always ahead (from the beginning). Maybe it's hard to see, but the key part was White's sacrifice to gain a lot of influence. Those were not mistakes by Ilya.
I also have the feeling that Mr. Catalin was outplayed in this game.

I am not a strong player and I tried to learn from dan players comments.
Jim(6dan) said all the time that white had no chance to win and the game was over. Other spectators cheered every move made by mr.Catalin like he played brilliantly, while mr.Shikshin made only mistakes.
In the end I was totally confused how could happen that white won.

I want to see Ilya and Artem become insei in Japan. I think they can become professionals there. Perhaps Korea would be too hard.
