The professionals usually have to give speeches during the reception on the evening before each title match game. During the speech before the 4th game Cho said something funny:

Yoda said that he knew he was up against an opponent that was maybe too tough for him, but he was determined to win the Meijin at least once in his life. Cho replied that as he hoped to win the Meijin at least 10 times on the trot to match his record in the Honinbo, he wished Yoda a long life.
