Okinawa student loses final match at shogi championships

Date Posted: 2001-08-30

A third year student at Tomari High School, Takuya Neho, representing Okinawa Prefecture, and Kazuma Yamauchi, representing Tokyo, fought the final match of the 14th All Japan High School Shogi Tournament on Friday in Fukuoka Prefecture.

Neho was one of the favorites to win the tournament, as he was the winner of the last few contests leading to the tournament, but he lost to his opponent despite being even until the last minutes. He failed to anticipate his opponent’s move at the end game, resulting him losing the match. Afterwards, he said he regretted his failure although he is fully satisfied with the result, as he had lost the game in the first round at the same tournament last year.

Neho started playing Shogi when he was about ten years old. He said he had had a hard time finding a strong opponent until he bought a computer last year. Since then he has been able to play agains various opponents on the Internet, and his skills have improved rapidly.
