 Game No. 1 of Shogi Ryuo sen title match was held on Oct. 14 and 15 in Nagasaki.  Ryuo Akira Watanabe is defending the title against a challenger, Yoshiharu Habu.  The title match two years ago between the two players was such a magnificent match going on to the seventh game (when Defending Ryuo Watanabe defended after three straight losses),  many of us have high expectation of this year’s title match.

   Around 6 o’clock on the second day, Yoshiharu Habu declared that he lost the game rather suddenly. (I am guessing as I do not know how to play, but judging from the chat and live blog, it seems that few people expected that he would declare a loss then.)  The title match continues.  Stay tuned.
