I wanted to make a guess, and I had some ideas for the bottom two corners but I’m not certain. I have no clue at all about the shape in the top right, so I just threw in some Black stones and am putting up a picture so I can stop trying to think of it It’s too hard for me
Sorry, my bad! I was going to wait a little bit longer, but I figured that since it’s so easy to make new ones that I would move on to the next round. I’ll try to be a bit more patient with the next one.
I actually considered using some famous game for the second round, but I think it would be too easy and not very fun. So I’ll keep picking fairly random games. But if someone recognizes a game I will simply applaud them and give them the full points
(Obviously don’t use any sort of automated pattern search though, that would be cheating and no fun)
I also want to guess that White is Lee Changho. I was watching Baduk Doctor’s recent video and at about 27:12 ish he says Lee Changho played L3 and won games even though other players thought it was slow. Not sure which game or who the Black player is though, or if I have Black’s moves right for that matter
I would like to give it a try, if the goal is to guess how the stones ended there, based on each player’s ideas. If the goal is “who remembers kifus better in here?” or “who does better search in Waltheri?” then it doesn’t sound very fun to me.
(Of course people who happen to know a game is different than actively doing it that way)
My reasoning start with L3 stones in a very awkward place, it must means there is some pressure from black on the side to prompt white to answer and live locally. If so, black should still has sente when it happens, and since the lower right is empty of white stones, black must have played 4-4 as move 3, since it is the only spot a N3 black stone makes sense.
If black has a tempo to keep sente, must means black start attacking on the white side first, judging by the white corner joseki, it only has two possibilities for move 5, bC14 or bF3, and white must use low approach wH3 answered bF3. White has one approach on O17, but it ended up with L17 gote, and upper left joseki would also result in black gote. But the bN3 is sente, so this lead me to believe that they settled the upper side of the board first, -> black attack upper left, gote, white attack upper right, gote-> black attack the lower left, white low approach H3, black large knight getting the lower right corner and put pressure on H3, white answer with L3, and then black invade the 3-3 at C3 finishing the joseki.
