Title match

I was fortunate to be able to attend the first game in Paris and after returning home tried to write down the marvelous analysis of Kataoka Satoshi, 9 dan, Takemiya Masaki, 9 dan, Kawamura Masamichi, 7 dan and Hotta Yozo, 9 dan. Please see the game record or download the gzipped PostScript file (16 pages).
