Ding Hao wins the 28th Samsung Cup


[1] Lian Xiao lost the game on time having been on his last 60 seconds byo-yomi for a quite a while, perhaps for the last 10 to 40 moves. During the crucial move he was first placing the stone on another intersection, but then quickly moved his hand to another place where he ended up playing. After this he moved his hand to press the game clock, but as he was moving his hand to the clock, the clock spoke "ten" and "time exceeded" followed by Lian pressing the clock less than half a second too late. After this Lian stared at the game board in disbelief for about four and half minutes before gesturing something over the board as just to take part in the post-game review just slightly. In the meanwhile Park Junghwan was really understanding and didn't do any actual reviewing either, only some slight hand gestures over the board. After this hand gesture by Lian Xiao, he continued to stare the board for another 5 minutes while Park Junghwan gestured some areas on the board without really moving any stones. After about 10 minutes they removed the stones from the board without reviewing any moves at all. The different AI's had about 66-75% winning percentage estimate for Park Junghwan at the time when Lian's time expired on move 107.
