Played by Honinbo Shusaku and Gennan Inseki in the mid-1800's, the Ear-Reddening game is perhaps the most well-known game in the Go world. Honinbo Shusaku won by 2 points. Move 127 by Honinbo Shusaku is the highlighted move of the game. Move 127 covered and made territory in all directions. The "ear-reddening move", as that move was called, was the very first (and arguably only) recorded "kami no itte" or "divine move".
