9x9 games watchlist

Pros don’t play 9x9, bot games are boring. So I decided to look for strong games on OGS. Here’s three.

This one is already in yose and it’s a close one, maybe even half a point game. So a good endgame practice for us. These guys played recently already, and in the same manner game was decided by careful splitting the board.

Second one is this, basically yose also.

And this one is still pretty open.

I’m currently in the title match for Meijin Nines Title Tournament 2018. It’s early though, and my opponent has been using vacation and weekend pausing to play as little as possible…

It’s a shame we’ve gotten to the point where 9x9 players are put on a watchlist. Understandable though.

I didn’t play the game below perfectly, but I did find a cool game-winning play at move 42.

Happy.


The AI path at 14/15 is hard to understand. We both missed it. Besides that, I think the losing move was either 3 or 7.

There are several pros who play 9x9 on GoQuest:

  • spaceman (Ohashi Hirofumi)
  • naotin15 (Mannami Nao)
  • bluedragon (Shibano Ryunosuke)
    There may be others, as these three are no longer at the top of the ranking.

congratulations :slightly_smiling_face:
