Cho Chikun Defends Judan Title Succesfully

Last night, Cho Chikun defended his Judan title against Yamashita Keigo. It was quite an exciting game, I watched it till 5am when I was too tired to stay up any longer. This morning, found out that Cho beat Yamashita by 3.5, not bad. This is Cho Chikun's 3rd consecutive title in this event and also his 71st champion of his career. Seventy one championships, hard to imagine.

This was the second year Yamashita challenged Cho for the Judan title. Yamashita is the current holder of the Kisei title.

Jan van Rongen has a site dedicated to Cho Chikun at his My Friday Night Files.
