'Korondo' 9d is back!

You may remember Youngsam Kim's impressive journey to become the 2011 European Open Champion. He told us in an interview for GoSensations, before the European Go Congress, that he was planning to win the Open, and indeed he managed to do just that, with the perfect score of 10-0!

He is now playing as Korondo on KGS again, after a three-month break.

Today he (playing as White) beat DaoCe 9d in under 120 moves - a true sensation! - in a game where we could get a glimpse into his enormous strength. A powerful attack started with W80 (J4), and Black's whole group all of a sudden turned out to be in great danger. W118 (R9) was the coup de grace: the Black dragon was captured and DaoCe was forced to resign.

PS:Korondo is currently the No. 1 ranked player on KGS, according to the official 'Top 100 KGS Players'.
