Mochy v. Falafel

If asked to select the two best players in the world today, the names of Matvey "Falafel" Natanzon and Mochisuki "Mochy" Masayuki would be in anybody's short list. Last night on GridGammon in an IIBGF match, they played a 13 pointer that kept the gallery enthralled for two hours, with a dazzling exhibition of world champion level play. Neither made any blunders and both played with a PR of under 2 on eXtremeGammon. I'm spending the next week annotating this match and together with comments from Mochy and Falafel, it will be for sale at a price of $10 for an XG, Snowie or Gnu file, or $15 as a Word doc.
Studying annotated matches of high class players is one of the best ways to improve your game. Don't miss this one.
