This is still handicap week. At a guess, not too many of you will have seen a handicap game of sunjang baduk. Here's your chance. This counts as a 6-stone handicap. There seems to no logic in that but the same principle applies for the other possible handicaps (4 to 8 stones). Presumably White's centre stone was not counted, he had to play there anyway (a quasi-rule) and then he got first move because it was a handicap game. (There were also quite a few josekis but none appear in this game.)

White was actually a Japanese pro. Hara Soshichiro was a Honinbo pupil, and was granted a 3-dan diploma by Honinbo Shusai in 1909. He opened a go salon in Tokyo, but here he is at his school in Korea when he was still 2-dan. He also later played in the Igo Doshikai in Japan. His opponent was a very famous Korean novelist. His best known work is probably Tears of Blood. As it happens, one of the games later this week is one of the famous Games of Blood and Tears.
