their earlier games...
all their games...
In game 4 of the title match, both the Meijin and the challenger
were in byo-yomi, when Cho asked ko-toriban (turn) to the scorer
(is it my turn to take the ko?) and as he said "yes", Cho played
213, taking a ko without making a ko-threat.
At that time, such question and answer dialogs were customary.
Ishida Yoshio in attendance and Asahi Shimbun immediately discussed
the situation, and Tamura Ryukihei (the game writer) announced
"mu-shoubu" (no game).
The scorer was Hikosaka Naoto (4 dan), who later became Judan.
Cho answered "I did not come to Japan to obtain 5 dan",
when a journalist offered his congratulations when Cho
was promoted to 5 dan some years earlier.
Now he publicly returned home full of honors.
He was invited by the President of Korea, and a photo of the
President and Cho in the Presidential Mansion was published
on the top page of the Korean evening news.
