Choi cheolhan 9P, explaining 1st round of the final, said, “White has taken the lead and played well. Shin jinseo 9P was shaken in a Ke Jie’s all-in move (in an actual game 139 move). If he connected stones briefly, it would be easy to win. After that, Shin jinseo 9P kept shaking and Ke Jie succeeded in turning the tables.”
The white won a fight in lower right corner. even if Ko occurs, white has internal ko threat and can capture black at all. Ke Jie played the all-in move in upper side and shook Shin jinseo 9P.
CHOI cheolhan 9P’s a must win reference. He said “just connect and make no big ko threat, then Black is on the unanswered situation.”
Shin jinseo 9P played hane with corner and allowed a reversal. Even if the middle and end game was tight at 5:5, Ke Jie won the game with active move.
