Two of the most exciting players
Gu Li and Lee Sedol are two of the most exciting players of this generation, and they play their best Go when they play together.
That’s why so many people have been looking forward to such a match and have been working towards making it happen for several years.
This match will give the players more time to think than most tournaments these days (4 hours + 5 x min byo-yomi each), so we’re hopeful that Lee and Gu will be able to create their masterpiece together.
