Games of Cho Chikun against Hane Yasumasa

Hane Yasumasa (born 1944) became professional in 1955. He is a professional at the Central (Nagoya) Branch of the Nihon Ki-in. He won the Oza in 1990.

Father of Hane Naoki, and at least one person I know is convinced that father and son Touya in Hikaru no Go are "of course" inpired by father and son Hane.

One of the first Go professionals to play a game on the Internet Go Server in december 1993 when he visited the Netherlands. See an interview that Pieter Mioch made and that can be found on gobase.

Cho won, early in his career, the 5th Shin'ei Final against Hane, the first game in the list below, which is quite interesting.
