The most prestigious Japanese renju event of the year is about to begin. The legendary Shigeru Nakamura has been meijin 28 times (!) which is more than Shunsuke Kamiya’s age (he is 25 now).
Kamiya is in excellent form achieving bronze medal in the WC A-final and winning the Meijinsen tournament but is it enough to really fight for the Meijin title in his ever first Meijin Match? The first game is scheduled at 10am Japanese time on the 26th of October next Saturday. There will be live video broadcast in youtube and renjuportal.com
The match is played until the challenger reaches 3 points or the Meijin reaches 2.5 points.
