After two days of resting...somehow, yesterday was normal camp schedule again. The day started with me being ten minutes late for my league game. I was properly punished since I lost that game.
The lunch cheered my up a bit. I had something called Donburi if I remember correctly.
The lectures began with Maeda-sensei showing the solutions of the endgame homework. I got the complete endgame sequence right but was one point off in the counting. I guess this is better than the other way around but I was still not eligible for prizes :-(
|You can do this one, too! It's blacks turn. What is the final score with optimal endgame for both? (The board is 11x11)|
|San-san invasion as 4th move by white is a recent innovation to play against the Chinese opening.|
After the game Nakano-sensei told me that I should have cut and attacked his groups more severe. I generally agree with that but against a 9p it's kind of scary. It really feels like he places two stones with every move.
The rest of the day was freely available for open games. In the evening we have been in a very nice restaurant which served many different grilled meat sticks. I also got my first Japanese Sake there.

I finished the day with playing against just another French guy (the 3rd of the day).
PS: Since it was kind of a Nakano-sensei day I give you an extra photo of him. Actually, he is quite a good musician. I do not know how the instrument is called. Obviously its kind of a guitar but with just three strings. He even gave a small performance.
