Here we go again. It's interesting to see how are players from Taiwan dominating, 9 out of 13 players in championship have taiwanese flag above to their names! Whereas c6 comunity in Taiwan is growing and evolving, Europe seems to be losing interest. What's a pity, because c6 has nice potential, but i can't see a way to change it without a proper online gaming c6 site or some big international tournament.
And my tips - well i don't follow the c6 scene here anymore, so it will be rather shots in the dark
By now, it is clear, flytogame will be the winner of this championship, congratulate!
And look forward to the championship 6
We now can conclude that Infinity will be the winner of the Connect6 Championship #5. Congratulations!
Thanks! At the very beginning i got 2 loss, so the start of championship was bad for me. Later, i think, i was a liitle more lucky than others. See U in the next championship :)
wow, congrats Infinity, have to admit i'm very surprised :)
In this Championship deciding game, I think Infinity's move 45 is so creative. I bet there are still many people do not understand how the game is over on this move.
On the other hand, I wonder why Connect6 played this game like this (move 38 and 40, placing stones on the corner). Did he consider this game would be a draw when he made the move 38? In a recent discussion with Prof. I-Chen Wu about how to avoid C6 drawing game, there is a proposal: when the game is likely to be a draw, the player who first passes a move and the game ends up being a draw is the winner of that likely-to-be-a-draw game. So, this player must be very sure that after he/she makes a pass, there is no way for his/her opponent to win the game. The merit of this proposal (better than counting the number of 5-in-a-row's) is that the game playing strategy won't be changed, at least before the game outcome is not clear yet. (If we adopt the method of counting the number of 5-in-a-row's, the game playing strategy might be significantly different starting from the beginning.)
Nevertheless, I consider this move 45 is so far one of the best moves I have ever seen from this Championship#5 tournament. Do you guys want to point out other wonderful moves to share with others?
The Draw with connect6 wouldn't changed the first place. If he wrote me a suggestion to make a draw, i would agree. As for me, i do not understand his moves (38 and 40) The idea of counting 5-in-a-row's at the end makes game more interesting, i think.
Celebrate Infinity's masterful performance!
By the way, the two winners of connect6.ch.5.2.2 are Belgian and French!
ï¼·ell, I won't trust too much the nationalities indicated in players' profiles. As I know, MiRRoR is never a Frenchman. And we have great players from least known countries like Bhutan, Nauru.
