Nice self-atari by Oleg Mezhov(Diplomat)!
The game was exciting and the final position (before self-atari) was quite interesting.
I found that Diplomat can win the race, but it's not enough for him, if
White allows Black to connect by 1st line.
I added 2 variations. Was my reading correct?
Any way, it's strange to see liyue as KGS 5-dan. I am sure, she can play on 8-9 dan level on our server
