Hane Yasumasa was a pupil of Shimamura Toshihiro and turned professional in 1958. He won the Oza and Okan titles. He's also the father of another professional player, Hane Naoki.

In May 2001 father and son played an official [ext] game in the preliminary tournament for the 2002 Kisei title. Hane jr. won that game to advance to the Kisei league.

He is a very loyal exponent of the high Chinese opening, employing it almost exclusively in his later career.
