Today we had the TTS winners vs professional teaching games. Both of the players thellamalord (2 dan) and shymon (1 kyu) have challenged Katagami Daisuke 7 dan with 4 piece handicap. It was simultaneous match.
The games were very exciting and I hope to upload the whole games on youtube soon, so no spoilers!
The Tourney To Shodan feels like an amazing success with over 40 people joining and playing 8 rounds over 2 months span. It was a lot of effort from everyone, but a lot of fun as well.
I hope to continue the new way of shogi promotions online… while enjoying seeing everyone grow.
