Chaos night #2: Chinese star gets obliterated to a crowd of 1000, chaos(P) lives up to his name: chaos(P) 9d vs. xxoopp 9d
Won Seong-jin 9p, playing as chaos(P) 9d, is an active participant in many of Tygem's online tournaments. Recently he seems to be on a bit of a decline as in his last 20 games he has only gone 11-9, which is only subpar considering he used to go 17-3 and beyond (though it is now worth noting he is on a very nice 5-win streak). Could this perhaps be in connection to his sub-par performance in the pro circuit perhaps (or maybe his recent involvement with BaToo has affected his game? :p)? As a result he has also taken a severe hit in his T-points. There has been a Tygem article on chaos(P), including in-depth analysis on his style of play, breakdown investigation of his screen name, and a deep commentary on a game he played against hua 9d. You may find more information at http://www.tygem.com/column/tygem9/viewpage.asp?pagec=1&seq=9305&gubun=7 (in Korea, non-Korean speakers please use Google Translate).
xxoopp 9d is a very popular Chinese player and often garners over 700 observers very easily. However, he is one of the few players who have a lengthy history on Tygem but as far as my research has gone there is not much info on who this player is. Nonetheless, there has also been a Tygem article on xxoopp for those interested, including a commentated game he played against Choi Cheol-han 9p (가닥구 9d): http://www.tygem.com/column/tygem9/viewpage.asp?pagec=3&seq=8707&gubun=7 (in Korean, non-Korean speakers please use Google Translate). It is worth noting that I posted a previous article where xxoopp played against charisma24 (Jo Hanseung 9p), so be sure to check that out as well!
Thoughts/Impression on the game:
-K16 is the winning tesuji.
-There is not much to say on this game because it ends VERY quickly :).
