Iyama YutaIchiriki Ryo

Unsatisfiable Iyama Yuta takes the Gosei title from Ichiriki Ryo. The best-of-five title match went all the way: 3-2. Next challenge for Iyama already started: the best-of-seven Meijin title match. He defends his title against challenger... Ichiriki Ryo.

Iyama YutaShibano Toramaru

With a three strike come-back from 1-3 behind Iyama managed to keep the Honinbo title for 10 times in a row. So what's next? Can Iyama also take the Kisei title for 10 times? (currently he has 9). Very impressive indeed.

Shibano ToramaruIyama Yuta

Just after finishing their battle for the 75th Honinbo title Shibano Toramaru and Iyama Yuta meet again for the 45th Meijin title. This time the role of title hlder and challenger are reversed though. Iyama had to work hard to become challenger. He needed to win all his league games to stay ahead of Ichiriki Ryo who ended 2nd with 7 out of 8 wins. For both an astonishing accomplishment.

Iyama YutaShibano Toramaru

It's just amazing: Iyama took the Honinbo title for the 9th time in a row. The challenger, Shibano Toramaru, put up a great fight but in the end was only able to take the 4th game. We cannot wait for the next edition of this tournament.

Iyama YutaKyo Kagen

After a very exciting game challenger Kyo Kagen took the lead against title holder Iyama Yuta. However, the 2nd game soon became favorable for the title holder. Several ko fights complicated things but not the outcome. The 3rd game showed some complicated fighting which turned out favorable for the challenger. The 4th game again featured interesting fighting with some remarkable furikawari as a result. So the 5th game was all deciding...

Iyama YutaShibano Toramaru

The match everyone was waiting for: Iyama Yuta versus Shibano Toramaru. They play for the Oza title, Iyama defending it, Shibano challenging.

Shibano ToramaruCho U

One day before his 20th birthday Shibano Toramaru gave himself a great present: the 44th Meijin title. In an exciting game with large exchanges a huge ko decided the outcome of the game. And although Cho U played some more endgame the outcome was inevitable.

Cho UShibano Toramaru

Cho U, title holder of the Meijin title faces kadoban against challenger Shibano Toramaru. The score: 3-1, so one more loss and Shibano will be the new Meijin at the age of 20 years.
