Dec-23-16  shintaro go: Great interest for this match...
Dec-24-16  dm1991: The classical portion ended in a tie. In this case two 5+3 blitz games were played and both ended up in black winning so they played an armageddon to decide the match and it was won by Rapport: I liked this match, mainly because i'm a big fan of Rapport's opening shenanigans.
