In 27th JT JAPAN series tournament (knock-out tournament), SATO Yasumitsu and GODA Masataka will play on 26th November. The winner is the champion.
In 14th Ginga-sen (aka. Galaxy-tournament, knock-out tournament), HABU yoshiharu wins over KOBAYASHI Hiroshi.
In 37th Shinjino-sen (knock-out tournament), ITODANI Tetsuro 4-dan wins over YOKOYAMA Hiroaki 4-dan and gets the championship.
