The position of the game of "Go" used by the lecturer as an example is from a championship match of 1938 between master Shusai Meijin and challenger Kitani Minoru. The game was made known by Nobel Prize-winning writer Kawabata in his book "The Master of Go". The lecturer asks what possibly could cause the Master to make the fatal mistake on move 130. A likely answer is that the Shusai was overcome with anger at his opponent earlier using Shusai's own tricks against him, and emotion took over his reason, prompting him to make a hasty move.
