Youngest Japanese Pro Ever

“A 9-year-old girl from the city of Osaka will soon become the youngest professional go player in Japan.”

The girl will be 10 when she starts her pro career. The youngest pro ever was South Korea’s Cho Hun-yun.



“Nakamura will be the first go player to turn pro under Nihon Ki-in’s special screening system for “prospective, talented” players…”

Sumire Sumire Su… miresu… Mary S… :astonished:

…with her father, Shinya Nakamura, who holds the higher rank of ninth dan.

So it’s family tradition.
