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.
When ITODANI joined in this tournament, he was 3-dan (Of course, in “Shoreikai”) and not professional player. So, it is be a remarkable record. It is the 2nd time that player who is/was 3-dan (when he joins the tournament) gets the championship. The first one is MORIUCHI Toshiyuki.
