Reminiscing on SGM Masked Cup

Remember 2018? Korea held a tournament were all players wore masks and had pseudonyms so the viewers didn’t know who played who. Although the country was known. When the player lost and was eliminated only then the mask was taken off. I guess it would be even more fun if we (westerners) followed professionals more closely to try and figure out who is who. But like that it was just funny masks and unusual atmosphere.

I thought to check up the old recordings on youtube. But I can’t find them at all. Looks like another part of go history forever lost for us.


However prudent Chinese saved up some of the clips.
