Challenger final

The final of the 1995 Kisei challenger tournament featured the two top Kobayashi's: Kobayashi Koichi and Kobayashi Satoru.

Kobayashi Koichi has been very succesful over the recent years dominating the Meijin title (8 times in a row) and taking all big (best of 7) titles except the Honinbo title, which has been well defended by Cho Chikun so far.

Kobayashi Satoru is less famous than his contemporary members of the Kitani school. This might partly be due to the fact that he couldn't manage to grasp any of the big titles yet. Anyway, he made a great leap forward in his career this year by winning the final of the 1995 Kisei challenger tournament.

Below you will find the games of the final (best of three). You can request the game record by selecting the result.

Preliminary finals

There are various ways a player can qualify for the final stages of the Challenger Tournament:

qualifiers for challenger tournament
Honinbo Cho Chikun
(The current Kisei, so this place is not used this year)
Meijin Kobayashi Koichi
Tengen Rin Kaiho
Judan Otake Hideo
Oza Kato Masao
Last four of 9d elimination tournament Kobayashi Satoru
Hikosaka Naoto
Hane Yasumasa
Kudo Norio
Winner 7d elimination tournament Morita Michihiro
Winner 8d elimination tournament Yuki Satoshi
Winner 1-6 dan (+ loosers from 7d & 8d) elimination tournament Imamura Yoshiaki

By the way, Kobayashi Satoru won the final of the 9 dan section (although that doesn't give any advantages over the 2nd place for the final of the challenger tournament). The seeding in the knockout schedule is determined by chance (drawing).
