PARK Junghwan 9P
KE Jie 9P
The game was tight. However, PARK made a mistake(161) and KE got a little lead. in the middle and endgame, PARK chased a lot and succeeded making very tiny game, but KE kept leading the game so it was bad situation. While then, KE did a big mistake; He had to strengthen, but he couldn't realize that and reinforced it late and the match was also overturned. As a result, PARK Junghwan succeeded winning the game.
The reason why KE Jie suddenly reinforced
Because it was very tight and tiny, in the situation that nobody can concede, KE Jie played white 1(25 in actual). It was a move that reinforce some ajis. after that, PARK Junghwan can play black 2 and got a lead.
If he didn't reinforce, when white play 3, black can play 4 ~ 16 and can capture white 2 stones.
