The Nihon Ki-in will promote Nakamura Sumire, daugther of
Nakamura Shinya, 9p at 2019-04-01 to 1p.
This is remarkable for two reasons: her age, and she has
never been part of the insei program.
However, after having seen a game of her against Cho U, 9p,
her promotion to 1p was a fact.
On 2019-01-06 she played a demo game with Iyama Yuta.
