Sakata vs Takagawa
Before the game Sakata was considered the favourite. The game was won by Takagawa though, who went on to win the title and held it for many years.
Imagist: If I understand playing through, the game has three cases of furikawari. Black lets the top wall die in exchange for building a framework on the top left, then lets the top right corner die in exchange for expanding that framework along the entire left side, and finally the bottom right wall dies in exchange for winning a ko that allows him to destroy white's territory on the bottom. It's really a brilliant game.
Interestingly, this game features Crab Eyes during the opening.
What is the status of the white group in the left bottom corner? Can White survive?
Dave Sigaty: It seems to me that and are what happens if Black wants to try to capture White. The play at seems to make miai of a and b. Basically at this point Black is ahead by at least 20 points on the board and so the game ends :-)
hnishy: Black c threatens d and prevents connection. White should defend.
