Great news. Do her get to keep the money or is it put in a trust?

Unbelievable! Good luck on the Professional tour, Sumire-chan! She is definitely a genius.

Saw her on tv last night and just such a nice "normal" little kid.

Training and exposure certainly has helped her cause, but just can't begin to imagine what goes on in her grey matter to be @ pro Go level.

I guess we'll be hearing lots about her.

And now she’s played a game with her hero, Mr Iyama. Went up to the time limit for a draw!
