Since we have just had a thread in which an attempt was made to mix politics in China with go, I will bring forward a game I was going to show later.

It features Prince Su of the Qing court, taking a teaching game from Segoe Kensaku.

In the Boxer rebellion of 1900, Prince Su, who had a large house in Beijing just across from the British Embassy called the Fu, allowed his palace and walled courtyard to be used to shelter Chinese Christian refugees who had unsuccessfully sought protection inside the foreign legations. Even if he was leant on a little by the foreigners, he was clearly a genuinely noble man.

This game was played at the same location almost two decades on: for a brief moment, two competing nations brought together in friendship over the go board.

And note that the three-stone handicap was the Japanese version.

Did Segoe let him win?
