Hello all,

today Catalin Taranu (5p) got his revenge against CrazyStone,
again with 4 handicap stones for the bot and komi 0.5.

After an epic fight CrazyStone resigned. At that point (move 233)
Catalin was ahead by some 10 points. On KGS commentators
Petr Baudis (Prague, currently in Bonn) and Stefan Kaitschick 
(Hamburg) made a perfect double.
It is worth rereading the chat in the h4-game of August 02, 2012 in

A photo of Catalin in deep thinking mode is appended to text#16 
in the thread

During the game a majority of the chatters opted for handicap 3
for future exhibition games. But at the end "handicap 4" seemed
to remain the normal option under current circumstances.
