Ulsan Go extended its lead to four points after Choi Jeong 9-dan defeated Park Young-hoon 9-dan in a two-player matchup.
Fifteen minutes later, in a quick four-player match, Suryeohan Hapcheon sent out Futures Yoo Oh-seong 7-dan. With a 2-0 head-to-head lead against ‘Open Order’ Yoon Jun-sang 9-dan, it was a wise move, and it paid off. He had a long time to prepare, but his decision to go for the kill against a shaky opponent on the first move proved to be the difference in the first game.
“I’m very happy to have won the game,” said Yoo Oh-sung, 7th dan, “and I think the fact that I had Kim Jin-hwi behind me made me feel more relaxed, which led to the victory. It was also his first postseason victory.
