Who can beat Lee Sedol in such a way ?

     Obviously, not anybody. "ddcg" must be a top Chinese professional (look at his score and rating, both speaking about his value).
     The game was relatively calm until a certain moment. Both sides had big territories, especially the white one in the center looking somehow overwhelming. Everything started like an innocent fight for one more point, when black played F8 (177) and white answered F7 (178). It proved to be a devilish trap, involving the big white territory on the right, a disaster for Lee. It is clear to me that the Chinese player have seen the whole sequence, before playing F8. Just amazing, considering the short time they usually use in internet games.
    And the question comes: " Did Lee Sedol misread the black combination and didn´t see the blow coming from the sky or he felt he was behind and made a poker bluff, in order to win some more necessary points ?"
    A nice game to watch, ended abruptly in an unexpected way.

         "ddcg" 9D, China : 535 - 189 (38329 p)
         "idontca1" (Lee Sedol 9P), Korea : 93 - 22 (36692 p)

Maybe he thought was going to win to easily, so he tried to go for more points for a challenge?
