Exciting game: channaisan (new 9d!) vs. smartrobot 9d

channaisan, a strong player from China (Hong Kong, it seems), played his first three games on KGS all against kghin 8d (who we assume is his friend). He beat kghin every single time!

 Today channaisan finally played against a different opponent: he accepted the challenge of smartrobot (Jack Jin 2p) and... the amazing show began!

The game proved to be very exciting, with White (channaisan) going for the kill in the middle game: the thrilling attack started with W58 (cap), and up to W108 many people watching the game commented that Black was indeed in deep trouble!


As the game continued, Black not only saved his group, but also (see B141) started threatening White's own group at the top: White's attack backfired! In the end, smartrobot actually managed to kill that huge White dragon. Impressive!

(By losing this game, channaisan finally got a solid rank [9d].)

As a final point, we should add that channaisan chenns (Chan Nai San).

It seems that black always was alive no? Move 77 gives black eye at P13 and anytime T13-move makes the second eye at T14 in gote. But black prefers to play actively threatens to live by other way
