Yuta Iyama is hottest igo player in Japan. He has got the "Kisei" in last March, which is the greatest title in Japan. Thereby he has 6 thitles now. There are 7 titles in Japan. So he has almost all titles in Japan!
It was in the news on TV, newspaper, internet and so on. That's why, fans of him may be growing.
But my most favorite igo player is not him. The player is young and little is known about him. His brother is my subordinate by chance. I have met him for drink two times in this year.
I got his autograph on a Japanese fan!
Although, he is not doing so well recently. The brother told me that he had been hit with the shock of something. That's why, he lost an important game. I'm concerned about him.
