50 Years aGO - June 1973

Keith L. Arnold, hka, with Patrick Bannister | Published on 6/18/2023

Hirata Hironori emerged victorious in the 13th Amateur Top Ten.

An inter-city match was held between Prague and Berlin which ended with honors shared: 4-4.

On June 11-12 Ishida Yoshio Hon'inbo defeated Rin Kaihō Meijin to complete a successful defense of his Hon'inbo title with a clean sweep.  Lately, Ishida seemed to have had Rin's number.  We lack a "current"photo, so we attach this lovely one from their match the previous year.
