It almost appears as if this game was played to illustrate the concept of "amashi". While black desperately tries to build territory white keeps on erasing it, thus trying to win the game with the initial advantage of the komi.

With his 21st move, Cho shows his unwillingness to let his opponent make any territory, and finally manages to win the game with a total territory (black plus white) of less than 40 points, despite white having 6.5 points komi.
