YY: The first game of the 5th Ing Cup final match has just been concluded. Please, check it out. One of the most entertaining games of the year, it is. The two finalists are Chang Hao of China and Choe Cheolhan of Korea. Choe gained two Korean titles, Kuksu and Kiseong, from Yi Ch'ang-ho this year. Chang Hao does not need an introduction, having placed second in the 4th Ing Cup.

Choe plays an unusual opening. In the first battle, Chang Hao gains a bit in the upper corner and side. Then, Choe Cheolhan separates Chang's group and launches an attack. However, he overpaces and fails to achieve his goal. His 113 and 115 are unbelievable mistakes allowing to Chang to counterattack in the middle and build a huge wall around the left. Chang's lead is absolute and seemingly insurmountable.

Then, Choe starts his own flurry of "poison" attacks (his nickname is "poisonous snake" or "poison"). Chang collapses. Yi Setol, the commentator of the game, says one of the greatest games he has seen.

It looks to be a great match. Chang known as a great defender and of balanced approach while Choe as a great attacker.
