Wibin advanced to the finals with a lucky victory against Masaki Takemiya, 9th Dan, in the semifinals this morning. Wibin’s baduk game was on the rise, and at one point the win rate graph fell below 1%. However, as Takemiya, the oldest participant at the age of 72, dropped a stone at the start of the final countdown with the finish line in front of her eyes, Yubin got lucky. The moment Takemia picked up the new stone, there was no time left.
