Due to the stupid photographer snailing with his camera and photo progress, make me unable to update the blog after the shogi match, so far till today I still unable to get the good quality photo from him, since everything is late, I will just update the blog first and attach some bad resolution picture of the matches.

Finally is the day of the shogi match 3 April, 8am in the morning go to the venue for preparation. Ryou Takehito had been invited by me to be the arbiter of this shogi match event. There are only 8 peoples appear in the first round, so I setup the total matches
for 3 rounds. 6 laptops are used for this event for recording the kifu of the matches. I and a few committee as the recorder of the kifu. At first round, we are using the BCMshogi for recording the kifu. After the first round finish, we found that the software can only save half of the kifu we recorded, not sure whether it is a bug or error. Then, Ryou Takehito download another software for recording the kifu, that is shogidokoro. However not all the kifu is recorded, at least the final round of the dragon king match is recorded.

The overall, there are 13 games.
5 games end with illegal move.
- 2 2 pawns drop.
- 1 Eat own pawn with Knight.
- 1 Promoted Knight move back diagonally
- 1 Rook move like Bishop.
7 games record available.
1 game record lost.
1 manually game record.

The Result of the shogi match.

Rank 1 - Jimmy
Rank 2 - Fish
Rank 3 - Cherry
Rank 4 - Apple
Rank 5 - Panda
Rank 6 - Kaz
Rank 7 - Jason
Rank 8 - Billy
Rank 9 - Kjying
Rank 10 - Conan

After the event finish, Ryou Takehito was asked to play with 3 peoples in a row. The players are Billy, Cherry and Fish. Billy was playing with 4 pieces handicap that is rook, bishop and 2 lances from Ryou. However all of them lose to Ryou at the end, they learn a lot from Ryou.

I feel so proud of myself for holding this event as this is the first inner university shogi event in whole Malaysia. I feel honor that Ryou Takehito willing to sacrifice his free time to attending my event as arbiter. And I feel so happy that all my chess club friends come to support my event.

Finally good pictures is upload on 25 April
